What does the map tell us?

Having applied data analytics to previous editions of the map, I was keen to see what comparisons could be drawn from the 2016 map data.

Where are the big savings being made, what are the most popular areas for sharing and are shared services increasing in number, or diminishing?

However, we need to temper any of the conclusions that my analytics evidences, with an understanding that the LGA are clear that the map is an indicative guide to trends and activity in shared services between councils. For example, where suggested savings are involved, more councils did not state savings figures from their projects than provided
them. A larger base of evidence of savings would have provided greater assurance of the figures for analysis.
