Intelligence Hub

The Glasgow City Region Intelligence Hub provides a range of economic intelligence related services. This includes data analysis, policy research, economic modelling, strategy development and project evaluation for the City Region and the City Deal. The work covers a broad range of economic issues – including demographics, land use, sustainability, inward investment, economic growth, tourism, transport, enterprise, skills, employment and housing.

Work delivered by the Hub provides the evidence base for future policy and investment decisions across the Region. Recent work by the Hub includes:

  • The Regional Economic Baseline and accompanying local authority indicator dashboard
  • The development of a regional Computable General Equilibrium model produced with the Fraser of Allander Institute
  • A detailed analysis of the Region’s businesses base and its relative strengths and weaknesses
  • Production of briefing notes on key issues facing the economy such as COVID-19
  • Support for the development of the Regional Economic Recovery Plan and projects
