LG Data Rates Snapshot

I am pleased today to announce the release of the LG DATA Rates Snapshot for 2018-19, which analyses key performance indicators to compare rates across Tasmanian councils.

Regular performance reporting help councils ‘benchmark’ their own performance and identify focus areas for improvement as part of their ongoing strategic planning processes.

All snapshot data is sourced or derived from publicly available information, such as the Tasmanian Local Government Consolidated Data Collection, Tasmanian Auditor-General reports and Australian Bureau of Statistics catalogues.

Delivering a quality council performance monitoring and reporting framework is a joint, and ongoing, priority for both the Tasmanian Government and the local government sector.

The Rates Snapshot is available on the Local Government Division’s website:
