The Local Government Benchmarking Framework (LGBF) is a collection of performance indicators for all Scottish councils. The information helps you see how we are performing and how we compare with other councils for a number of service areas such as education and children's social work, planning, environment, roads, adult social work housing and economic development.

The data is reported by the Improvement Service and you can use the My Local Council website to explore the data.
