The London Intelligence

The London Intelligence tells London’s story through data. It tracks the city’s performance on key indicators, drawing together data and intelligence on London’s economy and society.

It brings a fresh perspective on one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse cities at a time of dramatic change, to stimulate public debate and help policymakers prepare and plan for the future.

The London Intelligence currently focuses on two regular bulletins:

Snapshot of Londoners

A survey of 1,500 Londoners in partnership with Savanta to understand how their perceptions, behaviours, and opinions change over time. In this survey Londoners are asked about their:

  • Wellbeing;
  • Experience of living in the city and plans for the future;
  • Work life and economic situation;
  • Satisfaction with housing and development, and local services;
  • Perceptions of safety;
  • Social interactions, habits and consumption.


London Economic Tracker

A publication monitoring changes to London’s economy in association with economists and policy experts at the Policy Institute and the Centre for Urban Science and Progress, both King’s College London.

Each edition highlights the latest data on London’s performance, as well as detailed analysis and commentary by sector experts.
