General description
Summary statistics on the numbers of organisations and individuals regulated by CIW by local authority, by services, places, noncompliance and concerns - annually

Data collection and calculation
Source: CIW registration and regulatory business system

Frequency of publication

Data reference periods
Annually: April - March

Users, uses and context
We believe the key users of information on regulated services in Wales (apart from CIW’s core use) are:
• Welsh Government Ministers
• Department for Health and Social Services
• Assembly Members and the Members’ Research Service in the National Assembly for Wales
• National Health Service
• The Office for National Statistics
• Local government unitary authorities (elected members and officials)
• Students, academics and universities,
• Other areas of the Welsh Government
• Other government departments
• Individual citizens and private companies.
Apart from CIW’s core use of the information these statistics are used in a variety of ways. Some examples of these include:
• Advice to Ministers
• Unitary authority comparisons and benchmarking
• To inform debate in the National Assembly for Wales and beyond
• To provide information to commissioners of care services

Rounding applied
No rounding has been applied.

Revisions information
Some of the data in this release may have been revised since its last publication in the Chief Inspector’s annual report.
However, as data is taken from an administrative system and gives a picture of activity recorded at a specific date, data will not be revised each quarter.

Statistical quality
Registration, de-registration and changes to registration occur throughout the year although in general the number of services registered at any one time is fairly consistent.
