Welcome to the Suffolk Observatory

The Suffolk Observatory contains all Suffolk’s vital statistics; it is the one-stop-shop for data, statistics and reports all about Suffolk provided by a variety of organisations.  Through data, reports and analysis, the Suffolk Observatory provides a comprehensive picture of the County and is a great source for useful facts and figures that will help you write reports and presentations, inform strategic and business planning, prepare funding applications or support academic research.

From 1 April 2019: East Suffolk Council was formed, covering the former districts of Suffolk Coastal District Council and Waveney District Council.  On the same day, Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council were replaced by a single district council called West Suffolk Council.

We are still preparing the new ward boundaries for our site.  We apologise for the delays in updating these. Please contact us should you have a specific data request that requires new ward boundary information.
