Hampshire Economic Assessment Update

Hampshire Economic Assessment Update

The first Hampshire Economic Assessment was published in January 2011. Since then the local economy of Hampshire has seen many changes, in the labour market in particular, but also in terms of its business structure and the overall output.

Various data sets have been released since the publication of the first Assessment. These provide an update of the recent changes in the economy and measure the effect that the most recent economic recession has had on the Hampshire local economy.

The first Economic Assessment is available on the Hampshire Economic Assessment pages.

The documents providing an update of the statistics presented in the first Assessment as well as additional information on the Hampshire economy are available in the second tab.

Supplementary analyses of the economic conditions are also available through other reports. These, although prepared independently of the Assessment, also provide a valuable source of information and the economic situation of the Hampshire Economic Area. The 'Topic reports' are available in the third tab of this page.

More detailed information and analysis of the economy of Hampshire is available on the Facts & Figures Economy pages, including the Labour Market Bulletins, Business stock or analysis of the Index of Multiple Deprivation. Additional information can also be obtained from the Economy team.
