Welcome to the ‘Isle of Wight Facts and Figures’ pages

The Business Intelligence Team maintain and populate a wide range of information and statistics about the Isle of Wight for use by various groups, including the Council itself to support and improve decision making and strategic planning processes. Other users include other local organisations, businesses and the local community.
