Launch of the Citizen Prosperity Index and dashboard 

20 June
UCL East Marshgate

We're pleased to be launching the new Citizen Prosperity Index (CPI) based on data from the first wave of the Prosperity in east London 2021-2031 Longitudinal Study.

The CPI measures what matters to the prosperity of communities in east London, using metrics based on qualitative research co-designed with and undertaken by citizen social scientists.  The Longitudinal Study uses the Citizen Prosperity Index to assess who benefits and how from investments in regeneration with a focus on strategic programmes in the Olympic Park, Royal Docks, and Poplar. Please join us to learn about the impacts of regeneration and the complex patterns of social and spatial disadvantage in 15 neighbourhoods in the Growth Boroughs, and the potential applications of our recently developed tool – the CPI dashboard.

The launch will be chaired by Professor Henrietta Moore, IGP's Founder and Director, and co-chaired by Mayor of Newham Rokhsana Fiaz.
