SSA breakdown

This collection of tables and information is intended as general background to the calculation of standard spending assessments (SSAs). It should be viewed as a statistical companion to The Local Government Finance Report. These tables show individual authority SSA broken down into service categories. It must be remembered that this breakdown is only for the purpose of calculating the total SSA. The indicator based assessments (IBAs) for each service category are in no way intended as spending targets. The ability of local authorities to set their own spending priorities is an important part of the Welsh revenue support grant distribution system. Therefore, the service IBAs shown in this report are not intended for use in determining individual authorities' budgeted expenditure on particular services.
