Neighbourhoods and area statistics in the post 2001 Census era

Martin, D. (2004) Neighbourhoods and area statistics in the post 2001 Census era Area, 36, (2), pp. 136-145. (doi:10.1111/j.0004-0894.2004.00210.x).

Record type: Article


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.
