The 1994 edition of Key Indicators of Local Authority Social Services is published today by the Department of Health.

The indicators provide a core of comparative information on the provision of services by local authorities and contains information on 190 indicators relating to council social services based largely on data collected by central government departments.

They were originally developed for the Social Services Inspectorate in their examinations of individual social services departments and for local authorities to monitor their own provision over time in comparison with other similar local authorities.

There are indicators on: demographic and social factors relating specifically to the provision of social services;

budget and standard spending assessment for 1994-95;

analysis of expenditure and expenditure rates in relation to the population for 1992-93;

child protection services, day care for children under 5 and secure accommodation;

services for adults covering residential and domiciliary care and private sector involvement; and

local authority staffing.

The indicators are in the process of being revised to take account of changes arising from the Children Act and the NHS and Community Care Act.
