GB Startup Index

GB Startup Index

GB Startup Index

The GB Startup Index is produced by Datadaptive from statistical analysis of records in the Companies House register of companies. The Index is designed as a basis for geographic comparison of levels of company formations over the most recent twelve month period. The Index is a composite of three measures:

  • the number of new company registrations in the past twelve months per head of population
  • the number of new company registrations in the past twelve months as a percentage of all active company registrations in the area
  • the median date of incorporation of all active company registrations in the area

The Index is available for two geographies: local authority districts (including unitaries) and Westminster parliamentary constituencies. The data package includes various rankings, Z-scores and modified Z-scores used as intermediate steps in calculation of the three measures and the composite index. The package also includes boundary polygons attributed with a selection of the Index data for purposes of thematic mapping. The Index data is available for use under an open licence.
