How we measured this

The TPI measures the drivers of wellbeing at local authority level using a broad set of indicators selected from datasets produced by reputable sources such as the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Public Health England (PHE) and the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). We select indicators that measure or provide a proxy for the key factors known to have an influence on wellbeing.

The indicators are standardised, transformed and combined to form the TPI scores provided on the scorecards.

The full methodology, indicator calculations, and indicator list for 2020 are available below. If you have specific questions about how we measure thriving places,
