West Sussex Life

West Sussex Life is a statistical report providing a range of information about West Sussex.

This new edition of West Sussex Life is a statistical snapshot of life in our county for all who live, work and visit here.

In an age where we all have access to more information and data than we have ever had before, these reports bring together the very best of it. They shine a light on what life is like for our communities now, and what it will be like for our county in the future based on current trends and predictions.

Created by our Insight and Intelligence Team, West Sussex Life covers issues such as:

  • the economic growth of our county
  • educational attainment among our young residents
  • how our use of technology has changed
  • the levels of deprivation and poverty faced by some of our towns and villages.

It is a real time analysis on the social, economic and demographic characteristics of our county. This is because it uses a combination of our own County Council information as well as data from external sources, such as the Office for National Statistics.

We have approached this edition a little differently by producing an online suite of reports which you can interact with. West Sussex Life comprises of five chapters, which are aligned with the core priorities in Our Council Plan. The first section, About West Sussex, contains information on a variety of subjects that are relevant to the county’s population as a whole.
