Wirral Compendium of Statistics
Our 2021 Compendium is now published
Produced annually by the Wirral Intelligence Service, the compendium of statistics is a quick reference guide to the borough’s statistics covering a range of areas.
The fourteenth compendium provides the most commonly requested information and data about Wirral’s population, children and young people, health and wellbeing, mortality, economy and business, transport, housing and the environment, and crime and safety of residents.
This year, the compendium is available online exclusively and can be viewed via this site.
The 2021 compendium also includes more information than all previous versions, with new data on issues such as climate change, obesity, and NHS Health Check uptakes. Some users may wonder why COVID-19 does not figure more in this edition of the compendium. This is because most published data is around 12-18 months behind, so the impact and data on the virus will appear in our 2022 or 2023 edition, rather than this one.
The online version of the Compendium of Statistics is more interactive too, allowing for easier navigation around the document. Users can now just click on tables in the contents page – and will be taken straight to the data.
Please also see the JSNA section of this site for more in-depth information and statistics on a variety of other health and wellbeing issues in Wirral and the Public Health Annual Reports stretching back a number of years.
