Measuring Levelling Up


Centre for Cities ReportThe UK economy is clustered in its 63 largest cities and towns. There is a great deal of variation between these places in terms of the types of economic activity that concentrate within them, and the opportunities they create for people who live in and around them.

This briefing pulls an array of indicators into two indexes to summarise and compare the performance of different places on two key issues — their ability to attract businesses and to provide employment opportunities to individuals — and what this means for policy, particularly ‘levelling up’.
