This questionnaire is part of a research project, commissioned by the Department for Communities and Local Government, to investigate the way users of local information systems benefit from the data and statistics the systems provide. The aim of the questionnaire is to obtain information about how you use the system and the way it helps you.
Examples of local information systems and providers in the West Midlands are:
- Black Country Knowledge
- Coventry Statistics
- Herefordshire Partnership
- Research Sandwell
- Shropshire Facts & Figures
- Staffordshire Observatory
- Warwickshire Observatory
- Worcestershire Research & Intelligence
The information from this study will be analysed and used to generate guidelines to improve local information systems. Answers will also be used to produce a list of the beneficial uses of systems and to estimate the value of local systems to users. Your answers will remain anonymous and will not be shared with anyone else.
