Cardiff and Bristol

PostThu Feb 28, 2019 10:12 am

I've just been reading this Bristol Post article that highlights an alarmingly high rate of business failures in Cardiff last year. The figures for Cardiff are so high in comparison to other surrounding counties that it almost feels like some sort of statistical error! ... ke-2591153

Naturally, with this being from the same journalistic stable as Wales Online, the headline question, "Why Bristol is doing better than Cardiff in wake of Brexit uncertainty", goes completely unanswered in the article.

There's definitely something suspicious about the claim that double the number of businesses registered were dissolved in Cardiff. If you look at the stats on all the other surrounding areas on the info graphic it's nothing like that anywhere else.

Highly misleading. A dissolved company doesn't necessarily represent a business going bust.

Maybe statistic due to Companies House being in Cardiff?
Build it and they will come.
Get it wrong and they will fall off.
