At the recent Business South Annual Conference, the Office for National Statistics presented some very interesting findings on our Central South region. Broadly speaking, the Central South includes;
– Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole
The data set found that the Central South’s productivity has actually declined in the period from 2010 to 2020, dropping from 4.2% to 3.9% of total output in England and Wales. Another interesting find, was that the Central South has an older average population compared to the England and Wales average. Amongst others, these findings are vital to academia, industry and public sector organisations when looking at the future of the region, in both cities and towns, and specific aspects to work on and try to improve.
