The Centre for Cities is an independent, non-partisan urban policy research unit and a charity registered in England.[1] The Centre's main goal is to understand how and why economic growth and change takes place in the United Kingdom's cities.


The Centre for Cities was launched in March 2005 as part of IPPR and became independent in November 2007.


The Centre produces an annual Cities Outlook report assessing the economic performance of the 64 largest towns and cities in the United Kingdom.[2][3][4]
