After the Radstats conference: photos, data, presentations

AGM-Leeds

Radstats members read reports at the annual general meeting.

On Saturday 26th of March 2011, exactly one month before the March Against the Cuts in London, around 70 people gathered at the Heart Centre in Leeds for the Radical Statistics Group’s annual conference, AGM and workshops, galvanised by the conference theme, ‘Cuts and Corporations’.

Since then, most of the speakers have provided presentations for the website. Also, Alan Franco provided data files detailing the local area data he presented in “From Witney to Wigan: How national changes to welfare benefit rules have a differential impact on local communities.”

The spreadsheets include compiled comparisons by local authorities and by parliamentary constituencies of the impact of changes in the Disability Living Allowance, Tax Credit Reductions, and Child Benefit.

We also have some links to photos from our facebook account.
