This dataset contains the Service
Indicators for Fingal as returned to the Local Government Management Agency and
published in the annual Service Indicators report. The Service Indicators
report can be downloaded from www.lgma.ie in the publications section
Service Indicator datasets for the
years 2004 to 2007 include a field called New_ID In 2008 the reference ID was
changed for many Service Indicators. The New_ID field is provided to enable
linking of indicators from years prior to 2008 to those from 2008 onwards.
However, it is important to note that the measurement criteria for many
indicators also changed, so it is not necessarily appropriate to make direct
comparisons between indicators. In the 2008 report the section relating to each
specific indicator outlines whether the indicator has changed. The Service
Indicator reports each contain two summary tables entitled Planning
Applications by Category and Local Authority Revenue – Summary of Collection.
To avoid the inclusion of duplicate records in the dataset, the records from
these summary tables have been omitted from this dataset.
