How your council is performing

We measure performance on a national scale using indicators from the Scottish Local Government Benchmarking Framework (LGBF).

The purpose of the LGBF is for councils to work together to:

  • improve their use of performance information
  • understand variations in achievements

Compare how your council is performing
