EZ Data Release 09.11.2016

The following data records the outputs of the Enterprise Zones programme since its inception, in April 2012, to March 2016.

These data are reported on a quarterly basis. The last data release was on 27 July 2016 and covered the period to December 2015.

These data are self-reported by local areas and have not been validated.  Data collection arrangements are kept under close review and steps are being taken to improve data quality.  Data are checked prior to release and efforts have been made to ensure its accuracy. Updated data from previous quarters is included where available.  In this quarter, returns from eight of the 24 Enterprise Zones in the programme were incomplete or not submitted by the due date.   No adjustments have been made to account for Enterprise Zones not reporting information, so these data are likely to under-report the jobs, companies and private investment across all Enterprise Zones.

The next publication of Enterprise Zone data will cover the period to June 2016 and will be released in the first quarter of 2017. This will include data for 12 new Zones that were established in April 2016.

The table below shows data for Enterprise Zones in England for the period April 2012 – December 2015 and April 2012 – March 2016.
