Women, minority ethnic groups, young people, and people in paid employment are under-represented in local government. The aim of this report is to explain why some local councils are more representative of their local populations than others, with a particular focus placed upon these under-represented groups. This study was commissioned to inform the deliberations of the Councillors Commission, which is looking at the role of local councillors, and the incentives and barriers to serving on councils.
