This paper examines the current interest in neighbourhood-based policy in England
and considers the extent to which the output geography developed for the 2001 census
helps to meet the need for neighbourhood-based data. The characteristics of the new
census output geography are presented, and the difficulties of creating meaningful
neighbourhood geographies from statistical reporting units reviewed. The new geography
will provide a much improved basis for the consolidation of data from official
administrative sources, but additional challenges are also discussed in relation to the
future of census data collection and publication.
