The UK Numeracy Index

National Numeracy and data company Experian have combined knowledge and datasets to build the UK Numeracy Index: the first ever model to predict and rank areas of the UK by numeracy skills and confidence.

The Index reveals fresh insight about numeracy issue across ward, local authority and regional levels. This unique and valuable data can used by policymakers, organisations and local communities to focus efforts to improve numeracy and boost social mobility.

Explore the UK Numeracy Index to local authority level, below. Darker purple areas represent a higher value of the Numeracy Index and therefore indicate areas of higher relative need. Conversely, brighter blue areas represent a lower value of the Numeracy Index and therefore indicate areas of lower relative need.
