EZ Data Release 27.07.2016

The following data records the outputs of the Enterprise Zones programme since its inception, in April 2012, to December 2015.

These data are reported on a quarterly basis. The last data release was on 3rd March 2016 and covered the period to September 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 3 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 March 2016 and will be released in Autumn 2016.

The table below shows data for Enterprise Zones in England for the period April 2012 – Sept 2015 and April 2012 – Dec 2015.
