The county of Essex is a complex and diverse part of the country. A great deal of information is gathered by Essex County Council, often working with partner organisations, that is used to inform decision making and future policy.
A great deal of information about the development of the county is gathered in the National Census, which takes place every ten years.
The Local Economic Assessment
Working with a number of partners, Essex County Council is responsible for the production of the Essex Local Economic Assessment (Essex LEA). The Essex LEA brings together a range of information to provide an accurate, impartial picture of the county, its residents, and the factors that will influence future growth and development of the economy.
The Essex LEA will inform the future development of strategy across the county for a range of stakeholders, including all of the local authorities within the area.
