Data and Intelligence Centre

Welcome to the SELEP Economic Data and Intelligence Centre

Our Economic Recovery and Renewal Strategy – Working Together for a Faster, Smarter and More Sustainable Economic Recovery – sets out how we will work with partners to support a path to recovery and renewal in the short to medium term.

Robust data and intelligence is pivotal to how we plan for and deliver our strategic activities and enables the economic performance across the region to be consistently tracked and monitored. Our economic data and intelligence centre is also a resource provided for our wider stakeholders, partners and network with access to a central repository of data and intelligence, to support the range of economic development activity happening across the LEP area.


SELEP has recently published its State of the Region report 2023.
This report has been produced by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) secretariat to inform the work of SELEP Ltd and our partners, supporting an ongoing evidence based approach to strategic economic growth. The local, national and global economy has faced significant challenges since our Local Industrial Strategy Evidence Base was produced in 2020 and this report provides a review of SELEP’s current economic performance and how it has been impacted in recent years. The report complements quarterly data and intelligence packs, drawing on a range of data sources and using the most recent data available in June 2023.

For anyone interested the data behind the report can be found here
