Statutory Performance Indicator Monitoring

Each year the Accounts Commission uses 25 Statutory Performance Indicators to see how well the 32 Scottish councils are performing in these areas, and to compare the 32 councils with each other. 2012/13 was the last time that these 25 Statutory Performance Indicators were published, since they have been replaced with 55 Local Government Benchmark Framework Indicators, which you can access below.
