The State of Ipswich Report is a report based on trends and issues from across the town that provide a description about the condition of Ipswich at a particular point in time. The aim of the report is to provoke discussion and encourage further research on topics of interest from around the town.

It is an annual process of data collection starting in January of each year to feed into the Business Planning process in May of the same year. Ipswich Borough Council and University Campus Suffolk (now University of Suffolk) launched the State of Ipswich 2014 as a joint venture with the hope to connect discussion between businesses, third sector organisations and other groups around the town.

The report is themed around twelve integrated categories which provide a brief description, statistical facts, and some sources for further investigation.

  1. Demography
  2. Diversity
  3. Skills and Education
  4. Economy
  5. Housing
  6. Health and Wellbeing
  7. Leisure
  8. Community Safety
  9. Civic Participation
  10. Built Environment
  11. Transportation
  12. Environment

A joint conference with UCS was held in June 2014 to explore some of these themes further. You can download the State of Ipswich presentation from the conference here.

We also hope that providing the information behind the report itself is useful for those interested in developing our research and discussion further.
