Index of Resilence
here. The index ranks the 324 boroughs in England by how resilient they appear to be to Government spending cuts; 1 being the most resilient and 324 the least. It appears to me a wealth index in the broadest sense, that is, not just money. It is a sort of index of multiple non-deprivation. It is of interest to me because it is at borough level, an important operational level of policing and it allows me to compare my borough rankings of policing data with an index that broadly indicates underlying social issues that may affect the nature of the crime and incident demand on police. Unfortunately the multiple index does include some crime elements so it is not totally independent from my data.
