Sandwell… I know it so well!

Sculpture in West BromwichOur regional resource catalogue has grown rapidly during the past twelve months and it now provides fully searchable access to over 2500 datasets, reports, web sites and other intelligence available. It’s one of the – if not the – most comprehensive catalogues of West Midlands data and intelligence available.

With coverage growing all the time, we are improving the content of the database all of the time. One of our more recent additions is the Research Sandwell website which is a ‘must-visit’ for anyone looking for data and intelligence on the Sandwell area.

At the time of writing, Research Sandwell provides access to over 250 research reports on a wide-range of themes including demography, economy and quality of life. In common with the Observatory’s interactive maps, the site also makes use of InstantAtlas software to produce dynamic visual reports that make regional and local patterns easier to see.

The organisation is also responsible for the State of Sandwell report which analyses the current state of Sandwell in terms on demography, young people, health, economy and skills.

So if you want to know more about Sandwell, take a look!

P.S. Don’t forget, if you come across a useful resource that is not included in our catalogue, you can submit it yourself!
