This report provides an update to the 2006 ‘State of the English Cities’ report, which provided a comprehensive analysis of city performance.

Four years after its publication, and with major changes in the economic and political context, this report seeks to take stock of new evidence and developments on the most critical urban issues. It reviews how the quantitative and qualitative evidence has developed since the publication of the State of the English Cities report, updates the key indicators relating to city performance, and identifies gaps in the evidence base in order to support future policy making.
