Local authority interactive tool (LAIT)
An interactive spreadsheet for comparing data about children and young people across all local authorities in England.
The local authority interactive tool (LAIT) presents information in interactive tables and charts with the local authority’s rank and position in England.
It includes data on:
- children looked after by local authorities
- child protection
- special educational needs and disability (SEND)
- pupil attainment
- children’s health
- post-16 circumstances
- judgements from Ofsted
The ‘Children’s services statistical neighbour benchmarking tool’ allows you to select a local authority and display its ‘closest statistical neighbours’ (local authorities with similar characteristics). More information is available in appendix A of the ‘Local authority interactive tool: user guide’.
We update the data in the LAIT regularly and record changes in the version log.
If you have any queries or comments about the tool, please contact us.
