The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries has now made financial data for 2020-21 available.
Since its launch in 2016, the website has increased interest within the sector in local government performance, for example, through the financial ratios used to calculate a local government’s Financial Health Indicator (FHI).
The website uses local government annual financial reports and Australian Bureau of Statistics information to chart the growth experienced in the sector.
