This includes all the documents we’ve found including Climate Action Plans, Climate strategies, pre plans etc. As well as the PDFs, or HTML pages, of the plans, this includes a CSV file (plans.csv) with details and sources for all the included files, along with information like GSS codes to enable linking to other data.
This comparison set combines all the other measures into a single list of similar councils.
Councils may be highly rated because they are very similar in one degree, or because they are slightly similar across several.
This comparison set shows councils who have a similar emissions profile to each other.
The goal is to try and draw comparisons between similar emissions in similar circumstances. The five different categories in the BEIS dataset are adjusted in different ways, and then councils are positioned on how different they are to each other.
The similarity between authorities is calculated by the proportion of the population living in high deprivation (1st quintile), medium deprivation (2nd-3rd quintile) and low deprivation (4th and 5th quintile) neighbourhoods. The population density is also used to help distinguish between authorities with very similar profiles of deprivation.
The labelling scheme is based on a composite score for the whole local authority. The quintile labels are assigned based on lower-tier population, and county and combined authorities are then slotted into based on their relative score.
This UK-wide comparison is based on a [Composite Index of Multiple Deprivation](https://mysociety.github.io/composite_uk_imd) system.
The similarity between authorities is calculated by the proportion of the population living in urban, rural, and highly rural neighbourhoods. The population density is also used to help distinguish between authorities in entirely urban areas.
This UK-wide comparison is based on a [Composite Rural Urban Classification](https://mysociety.github.io/uk_ruc/) system.
