Data Insight


The Data Insight team provide a host of data services for users across the West Midlands Combined Authority and partners including access to traffic counts, vehicle classifications, public transport passenger counts, road traffic collisions, congestion and planning data as well access to the managed survey framework.


In addition to this, we carry out various research projects and reports to align with the organisational and political annual objectives and, where possible, make this insight easily accessible via our online business insight and mapping tools. The team place a continued importance on improving and innovating the way in which we collect, store, manage, analyse and forecast data working closely with a range of Universities including UCL, University of Warwick and Birmingham City University to develop the effective use of data for practical applications across the PSI directorate.


The Data Insight Team also work conjointly with the Adept, RTCC, 5G, FMZ, Convex and CWG funded projects on their operational data service and consultancy needs including the development of a live incidents report to support the Regional Transport Coordination Centre with ‘Keeping the West Midlands Moving'
