Local councils provide a wide range of services for their communities. The information shown here is provided to help you understand how well Aberdeenshire Council is performing across this range of services. The framework covers most major areas of public service delivery in Scotland and includes information about the cost of services, the outcomes being achieved and how satisfied residents are with services.
Data is collected on the same basis from each council, so a figure for Aberdeenshire Council is statistically comparable to data provided by Argyll and Bute Council. However, when looking at the information and making comparisons it should be kept in mind that Scottish Councils are democratically elected bodies which represent very diverse communities in terms of geography, population, deprivation levels and community needs. The information should be read and understood in that context, as some of the variation in the data is significantly affected by such differences.
