This report presents a new tool – the inclusive growth monitor – to measure the relationship between prosperity and poverty.

Economic prosperity does not necessarily benefit all and there is a compelling need to understand whether cities are delivering ‘inclusive growth’.

The report:

  • Explains how the Inclusive Growth Monitor was conceived and designed.
  • Presents data on all 39 LEP areas of England using 18 indicators to capture the relationship between economic performance or potential ('prosperity') and poverty and related forms of disadvantage ('inclusion').
  • Highlights the positive relationship between prosperity and inclusion at a single point in time, but shows that increases in prosperity over time are not necessarily associated with greater inclusion.
  • Provides a strategic framework to shape the inclusive growth agenda in cities and city regions.
