by PwC

The Demos-PwC Good Growth for Cities Index looks beyond GDP and measures economic performance through the lens of the public’s priorities. How resilient is your city and what does post-COVID-19 recovery look like? Explore our latest Good Growth insights.

Good Growth for Cities

Good Growth for Cities measures the performance of the UK’s largest cities against 10 indicators that the public think are most important when it comes to economic wellbeing. The Index was developed by PwC and the think tank Demos in the aftermath of the financial crisis in response to the sense that we need to look beyond GDP headlines to measure economic success.

The pandemic has changed many things, but the public’s priorities have stayed consistent. Jobs and health are the two most important factors in the eyes of the public, alongside housing, income, skills, transport, income distribution, work-life balance, the environment and business start-ups.

While the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is still unfolding, our latest report explores the economic impact of COVID-19 on cities across the UK in 2020 and their recovery prospects for 2021.
