The Spend and Outcome Tool (SPOT) was first published in 2014 and gives an overview of spend and outcomes across key areas of business for Local Authorities (LAs). It uses previously published data on both spend and outcomes. It contains three years of data on spend and outcomes for a wide range of measures. SPOT can be used to compare with other geographical areas and a range of benchmarks.
SPOT can be a useful tool for LAs who are interested in comparing spend data on sexual and reproductive health with sexual and reproductive health outcomes. There are some issues which make drawing these comparisons complicated and potentially misleading.
