Comparative profiles

Examine how your organisation's service costs, performance and outcomes compare with your peers, to help make important decisions.

With the loss of compulsory performance measures, authorities wishing to compare and learn from other authorities have been left to resource any comparative analysis themselves, at a time when their own resources are diminished.

CIPFA can help with our extensive benchmarking experience, and we have developed a suite of comparative profiles that compare an authority to a selected group across indicators, collected from key public sector data sources. 

Please have a look at our current product range:

The Social Care ASC-FR, Section 251, and CIPFA Public Health reports can be found on our Social Care Benchmarking page. 

You can find historical data for the following discontinued products:
