Northern Powerhouse factsheet

Key figures on the city-regions in the Northern Powerhouse.

Briefing published on 2 June 2015 by Centre for Cities

With the creation of a Northern Powerhouse set to be a key priority for the new Government, this briefing sets out the current economic profile of the key city regions across the North and compares their performance with that of London and of the UK as a whole. Reflecting the policy pledges contained within the Conservative manifesto, for the purposes of this analysis the Northern Powerhouse is made up of the city regions of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and the North East.

The factsheet looks at the economy, population, jobs, knowledge intensive jobs, skills, commuting patterns and universities.
