The Council’s Central Research Unit publishes reports on statistical trends within South Lanarkshire, focusing on topics such as health, housing, population, the local economy, poverty, wealth etc.
The individual reports are grouped into 11 broad headings – wealth and deprivation, enterprises, labour market and earnings, qualifications and learning, benefits take up and sanctions, population and households, young people and education, community safety, health and care, alcohol and drugs and housing and homelessness.
The reports provide information on the latest report situation and where possible on trends and the South Lanarkshire situation relative to that in Scotland as a whole.
