About the JR Calculator

The JR Calculator has been developed to assist people in understanding what is happening in their local communities.

It provides comparative data on a number of issues that affect the economic, health and social well-being of a community. It also provides information on the amount being spent on corrective services for a particular community.

The data was last updated in February 2019. Data sources can be accessed here.

Access to information is a real driver of change. With the JR Calculator you can find out how much is being spent on corrective service responses for your community and to determine whether these responses provide the best return on that investment for your community.
