The very essence of development is experienced on a local level, yet decisions are often dealt with from a larger national perspective. The quality and effectiveness of local decisions are highly dependent on the type and nature of available local data.

The objective of this article is to explore a meaningful and comprehensive way in which local data can be structured to prioritise Local Economic Development strategies. This could serve as basis for research on the availability and accessibility of data on a local economic level.
The article seeks to develop a framework for the drivers underlying the economic objectives of economic efficiency, equity and economic stability. Together these drivers form a focused LED framework that captures the essence of LED strategies and programmes.
