Understanding Glasgow Understanding Glasgow mandala

We have led the development of health and wellbeing indicators for the city since 2010. The ‘Glasgow Indicators’ are held on the Understanding Glasgow website (launched in January 2011).

The indicators and website are the product of a collaboration among the city’s main public agencies, pulling together information from many sources. The site provides new insights, identifies key trends and comparisons, and highlights some striking statistics about Scotland’s largest city in an engaging and accessible way.

Since its launch a set of children’s indicators have been added to the site, a section of case studies of community projects using assets-based approaches, a series of short films about life in Glasgow and a section on using the data in educational and policy settings, which includes examples of Glasgow Game events.
