SLAED Indicators Framework

The SLAED Indicators Framework is a ‘basket’ of measures developed by SLAED with input from the Improvement Service and the Scottish Government.

The Framework is used by all Scottish Local Authority Economic Development services to provide a consistent basis for:

  • measuring the economic performance of Councils and highlighting the central role of economic outcomes in the SOA and the prevention agenda;
  • benchmarking comparative performance and identifying areas for potential improvement, where appropriate;
  • assisting and informing ongoing design and delivery of interventions, monitoring effectiveness and delivery towards the overall strategy; and
  • providing SLAED with aggregate data on overall levels of Council economic development activities and outputs.

SLAED Indicators Framework 2022-23

The SLAED Indicators Framework provides consistent evidence of what Scottish councils are delivering in their role as local economic development organisations. It includes a set of measures that can be used to assess the overall and relative delivery of council economic development activity and assist in identify areas for improvement.
