Spending review Wales: How resilient is your area?

This series of maps is designed to show the "resilience ranking" of local authority areas in Wales - essentially how vulnerable places are to cuts in public spending.

Based on a range of factors - from the number of high growth business sectors to the average earnings - the lighter areas show the places more likely to fare better in the event of cuts - the darker areas are more vulnerable.

Of all the local authorities, Monmouth is at number 1, the most resilient. Blaenau Gwent is at the other end of the scale, ranked 22, and the least resilient.
