Welcome to East Sussex in Figures

East Sussex in Figures (ESiF) is a Local Information System that provides the latest statistics on the social, economic and demographic character of East Sussex and its communities.

ESiF Update

East Sussex in Figures will be undergoing some exciting changes over the next few months. We need to renovate the website to meet accessibility requirements and replace outdated software. We are working jointly with Public Health colleagues to present key data and analysis about East Sussex in one place.

We’ll keep you informed of our plans.

If you have any questions contact esif@eastsussex.gov.uk
