What is the Worcestershire Local Economic Assessment?



The Worcestershire Local Economic Assessment (LEA) provides decision-makers with a timely, reliable and shared evidence base that outlines current and recent economic conditions in the county, and identifies emerging opportunities and challenges for the Worcestershire economy.

A sound understanding of the local economy helps the public sector, the Local Enterprise Partnership, businesses and business representatives, educational institutions, and the voluntary and community sector, to take decisions that encourage and stimulate sustainable economic growth in Worcestershire in the short, medium and long-term.

The LEA provides the intelligence to inform strategic documents, and to support funding bids and attract new investment to the county.



The LEA is primarily focused on the geographical area of Worcestershire County. Much of the evidence contained in this document relates to people who live or work in the county, and the businesses located here.

However, it is essential that the county is not viewed in isolation, therefore links with neighbouring authorities are considered, and regional, national and global linkages highlighted.


Intended Audience

The LEA is primarily targeted towards individuals and organisations responsible for taking decisions which affect the economic prosperity of the county. However, it is recognised that the breadth of information covered in the report is of relevance to other policy areas, and to members of the public.
