Comparing productivity performance across the UK using scorecard maps

Productivity is hard to measure and its drivers are numerous and strongly interrelated.  The Productivity Institute’s Productivity Lab has developed a scorecard series, which is comprised of five main regional productivity drivers that need to be analysed: business performance; skills and training; policy and institutions; health and well-being; and investment and infrastructures. These five regional productivity drivers are captured using 17 indicators and their past performance is analysed in the short and long-term to help develop regional strategic initiatives and objectives.

The scorecards have now also been converted into maps for each productivity driver, which provide a snapshot of how each region and devolved nation has fared. The maps offer a clear visualisation of the regional aspects of many of these drivers.

The original Productivity Scorecards are available to download from Figshare, while the maps can be viewed below.
