1 Overview of West Sussex Life

West Sussex Life is a report published every year, with the aim of providing a range of statistics and information about West Sussex.

The information and analysis can be used by residents, businesses and communities working to improve the areas in which they live and work, as well as by those of us in the public sector responsible for delivering services.

Our key priority areas are:

  • giving children the best start in life
  • championing the West Sussex economy
  • promoting independence in later life.

The accompanying Data Book contains the raw data used in producing West Sussex Life 2017-19, as well as maps and links to sources where appropriate.

We value your feedback on what you have used the information in the report for, as well as ideas and suggestions for improvements in future editions.
