Equality Monitoring Information

Equality monitoring is the process used to collect, store and analyse data about people.  It can be used to:

  • Highlight possible inequalities;

  • Investigate underlying causes; and

  • Remove any unfairness or disadvantage

Without equality monitoring the council will not know whether its equality policy is working.  It can help the council to use resources more effectively, help to avoid claims of discrimination and, help to improve the council's reputation as a good and fair service provider, and that of a good employer.


Under the Equality Act 2010, the council must publish relevant, proportionate information, demonstrating compliance with the General and Specific duties.

Equality information should include protected characteristics of both customers and employees.


Information gathered by the council is broken down into 6 main areas, making information easier to find.
