ENV 5a: Cost of trading standards per 1,000 population
Summary definition

Cost of trading standards per 1,000 population.

Why do we measure this?

Trading standards are relatively small in terms of council spending, but they are important because they are designed to protect the public. A per 1,000 population measure has been used as a simple measure of comparing costs across councils.

Comparing costs across councils helps us identify where best practice exists so that other councils can learn from it.
