Abstract

The Local Authority Census is an annual survey sent to all city councils, district councils, and non-market council-controlled organisations. The survey topics include income, expenditure, and assets. The Local Authority Financial Statistics (LAFS) is the core publication resulting from this survey. LAFS publishes information on income and expenditure, operating income and expenditure by activity, and financial position. These outputs are produced at the total level and by individual council.

LAFS are no longer published in the information release format used for 2009-13. Access the latest annual data from Infoshare instead.

See Changes by date for information on the latest updates.
