About the JR Calculator

The JR Calculator has been especially developed to assist people discover and understand 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 important information on the amount being spent on corrective services in a community. The data is based on 2013 figures. The situation in many cases has got a lot worse. Current data can be accessed here.

Access to information is a real driver of change and the JR Calculator can provide you with information to see if the money being spent on corrective service responses in your community is providing the best return on that investment. If not, we can provide advice on what you could do about it.
