Counting What Counts or (Simply) Measuring the Measurable?
Dr Laura Davison, the Head of Research, works for the City of London Corporation where she runs a programme spanning local communities and demographics, infrastructure, regulation and taxation, emerging markets and global competitiveness. She faces the unique challenge of measuring a borough with largest working population in Lodnon and a city with a residential population of less than 10,000.
In this part of the 'Measuring Up Cities' conference, focussing primarily on Greater London, Dr Davison explains the work of her department. How figures are collated and thence published to the public.
