Claimant Count (July 2021) was last updated on the 17th of August. All affected reports were published by the 17th of August.

Deprivation

Fuel Poverty Data for the year 2019/20 was last amended on the 13th of August introducing new Low-Income Low Energy Efficiency (LILEE) metric of fuel poverty that was adopted in the last year of publication.

The sub-regional estimates for 2019 are the first to be published using the LILEE metric. It should be noted these are not directly comparable with previous estimates made for sub-regional fuel poverty under the Low Income High Costs (LIHC) definition. The 2019 LILEE sub-regional fuel poverty model is based on the following seven variables, derived from public and commercial sources:

    • Tenure-owner-occupied, private rented, social rented (Experian)
    • Dwelling age – pre-1919, 1919 to 1944, 1945 to 1980, post-1980 (Experian)
    • Household composition (Experian)
    • Mosaic household classifications by postcode
    • 15 socio-economic groups as detailed in the Mosaic guide4 (Experian)
    • Dwelling type – terraced, detached, semi-detached, bungalow, flat (Experian)
    • Government office region (Experian)
    • Proportion of households with no qualifications per COA (2011 Census)

A household is considered to be fuel poor following the LILEE metric if it is living in a property with an energy efficiency rating of band D, E, F or G as determined by the most up-to-date Fuel Poverty Energy Efficiency Rating (FPEER) Methodology and its disposable income (income after housing costs (AHC) and energy needs) would be below the poverty line.

Please be reminded that fuel poverty is measured based on required energy bills rather than actual spending. This ensures that households that have low energy bills simply because they actively limit their use of energy at home, for example by not heating their home, are not overlooked.

 

IA National Data Service – July 2021 Data Update

Crime

June 2021 monthly and 12 monthly rolling average data was released only at the beginning of July. Data updates will figure in the August blog update.

Gross Value Added (GVA) for the year 2019 was updated on the 6th of July.

In the economic accounts, the economy is split into institutional sectors, that is, units broadly grouped according to their role in the economy. The GVA measures the increase in the value of the economy due to the production of goods and services. It is measured at current basic prices, which include the effect of inflation, excluding taxes (less subsidies) on products. GVA plus taxes (less subsidies) on products is equivalent to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) [Source ONS: UK Regional Accounts Methodology Guide].

    Education

    Key Stage 5 Results for the academic year 2019/20 were released. This release has been uploaded as a new dataset in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the pandemic, the exams were cancelled and the results were awarded by a centre assessment grade (based on what the school or college believed the student would most likely have achieved) or their calculated grade using a model developed by Ofqual – whichever was the higher of the two. The statistics have increased as a result of this awarding method – more than would be expected in a typical year – between the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years. This reflects the change to the way grades were awarded rather than improvements in pupil performance. As a result, the 2019/20 data should not be directly compared to attainment data from previous years to measure changes in student performance. For these specific reasons, the measures for Key Stage 5 in 2018/19 e the same measures for 2019/20 are now two separate datasets. Furthermore, the department decided to not publish value-added measures, as these measures are calculated by a model that is based on national averages. Considering the awarding method, the estimated model would not measure the progress made by a pupil in a meaningful or accurate manner. However, for consistency and transparency, the remaining headline measures were reported in this statistical release (amongst others):

    • Attainment in terms of Average Point Score (APS) per entry for A level (subset of Academic), Applied General, Tech Level, and Technical Certificate exam cohorts

    • English and maths progress

    Key Stage 4 Results for the academic year 2019/20 were released. This release has been uploaded as a new dataset in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the pandemic, the exams were cancelled and the results were awarded by a centre assessment grade (based on what the school or college believed the student would most likely have achieved) or their calculated grade using a model developed by Ofqual – whichever was the higher of the two. The attainment statistics have increased as a result of this awarding method – more than would be expected in a typical year – between the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years. This reflects the change to the way GCSE grades were awarded rather than improvements in pupil performance. As a result, the 2019/20 data should not be directly compared to attainment data from previous years to measure changes in student performance. For these specific reasons, the measures for Key Stage 4 in 2018/19 e the same measures for 2019/20 are now two separate datasets. Please note that Progress 8 indicators are not available in 2019/20. These measures are calculated by a model that is based on national averages. Considering the awarding method, the estimated model would not measure the progress made by a pupil in a meaningful or accurate manner.
