Census 2011

This theme provides data and reports on local results from the 2011 Census. The census is the only survey which provides a detailed picture of the entire population. Topics include age, health, education, ethnicity, language use, work and religion, amongst others.

Community safety

The Community Safety pages on Cambridgeshire Insight provide overview of the work completed in support of the five district Community Safety partnerships within Cambridgeshire. Research, monitoring and information needs are provided for each CSP to enable the partnerships to monitor their performance and plan appropriate actions to tackle emerging issues. We produce a variety of reports for each CSP each year.  These reports are based on analysis done on data from the Police, Fire and Rescue, East of England Ambulance Service, and emergency departments, amongst others, to establish patterns in crime, alcohol and drug misuse, and anti-social behaviour.

We also showcase bespoke analyses on a range of topical issues, as required. Links to these reports and the strategic assessments can also be found on Cambridgeshire Insight along with links to a range of open data sources used in our research.

Police recorded crime and anti-social behaviour data are also viewable on our interactive community safety atlases within Cambridgeshire Insight. A minimum of five years data is available to view trends of the main crime types by ward.

Consultations & surveys

The Research and Performance Team co-ordinates survey work and consultations undertaken by the authority, ensuring sound methodologies are adopted and information is properly shared and used.

We provide assistance or running of specific surveys and consultations plus giving advice on methodology, data collection, processing, analysis, reporting and use of findings. We have produced a consultation toolkit to assist people to run consultations and surveys. We also manage a database of consultations. All consultations and surveys with the public or service users are recorded on this database as soon as they are planned.
