Constructing a social audit: putting the regional multiplier into practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Social audits provide a useful tool for analysing the community impacts of decisions to close, cut back, open or expand facilities involving significant numbers of jobs. By incorporating elements of economic, social, environmental and opportunity costs they can extend the costing base of impact analyses. This can be useful in seeking supportive funding from government for a particular project. Concentrating largely on costs manifested through employment/unemployment this paper, sets out a framework for those wishing to conduct social audits,drawing particularly on the experience of two earlier studies. -Author
