The templates below are to be used flexibly and they are intended to be adapted to the needs of different neighbourhoods. If you find new sources of data that fit into the framework, they can be added in or if data used in these templates is not relevant it can be removed.

  • Benchmark template - this is used to analyse data from residents surveys and includes formulas for statistical testing. You could add questions if they can be compared to national data but otherwise it should remain unchanged.
  • Hard data scoring template - this brings together all the different sources of hard data (see Stage 4). Other data sources can be added and scored in the same way, depending on what is available, timely and relevant.
  • Overall scoring sheet template - this brings together all the different sorts of data. If you are using different questions to these then adapt it accordingly.
