LEEDS CITY CENTRE MOVEMENT INDEX.

PlaceDashboard tracks the changes in human movement in cities across the UK during the COVID-19 lock down.

People Movement Index

To help us all understand how we are staying safe, PlaceDashboard’s location insight is tracking the change in movement behaviour patterns in city centres across the UK.

Each week PlaceDashboard is publishing  a people movement index to measure the success of the stay at home government instruction. The base line for the index is Monday 23rd March 2020, with an index number of 100. We forecast the index to significanty fall during the lockdown period and then start to increase and move above the 100 index level as the lockdown is gradually relaxed. We have calculated two distinct behaviour movement indices, ‘Total Movement’ and ‘Walking/Cycling’ which is achieved by isolating devices which are travelling between 3 and 10 miles per hour.
