Core Spending Power is the Government’s preferred measure of local authority income as it is a broader measure of the resources available to a local authority including income that can be raised locally. This data can be found at:

The Department does not publish core spending power on a per capita basis but does publish core spending power per dwelling, which is available at the same link.
