The second ‘State of Economic Justice in Birmingham and the Black Country’, authored by the New Policy Institute and supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust, revisits themes and data from the first report, whilst incorporating current concerns and interests of local stakeholders.

Using public datasets and administrative statistics, the research looks at population and public health; household and community resources; productivity and jobs; employment, pay and job security; and housing, and analyses the economic outcomes for people living in Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Barrow Cadbury Trust and the New Policy Institute hope this report provides evidence to assist action, target resources and attract additional attention to the region from a range of audiences.
