2023 Healthy Streets Scorecard results
The City is not a borough of London but an administrative district with few residents, and it continues to lead the Scorecard due to its small area and population, and progressive action. It has rolled out significant bus and cycle priority in recent years and has a progressive transport strategy and strong record of delivery. Other boroughs could learn from The City’s practice of creating more sustainable and attractive environments for people. There hasn’t been a huge change in various metrics since last year for the City, but given what has been delivered in the past, and plans under consultation, we expect to see significant progress in the coming year.
The Healthy Streets Scorecard combine scores for ten indicators to create an overall Healthy Streets score for each borough. See the graph below for 2023 results (includes 2019 – 2022 results for comparison). For more detail visit the London-wide overview of the 2023 results. You can also:
Scorecard (factored score) chart explained
In the chart above, each borough has been given a factored score. Factor scores are composite variables which provide information about a borough’s placement on a scale. Factor scores are given by F=XB, where X is the indicator normalised score for a borough and B is the factor score coefficient (or weight). Each indicator is weighted as 1, or 0.5 if there are two parts to one indicator, for example Modeshare has a weighting of 1, Active travel – walking has a weighting of 0.5 and Active travel – cycling has a weighting of 0.5. The borough’s total factored score is the sum of all indicator factored scores which is then factored to 10 (multiplied by the number of indicators/10) to give a value on the scale between zero and 10. We can then compare boroughs against each other on the scale.
