Geographies available for the Census 2011
Wards comprise of different populations and therefore do not provide a reliable means to compare areas across the country. As a result Output Areas and Super Output Areas were published in the last Census 2001, to enable analysis of small areas with similar sized populations.
Super Output Areas have become the standard geography for producing statistics and analysis for small areas.
Following various developments and demographic changes since the last Census in 2001, some changes have been made to the old boundaries to create, split or merge into new Output Areas and Super Output Area boundaries. These boundaries are now available on Insightmapping
Changes to Geographies
Local and detailed characteristics (available down to Lower Super Output Area)
Local and detailed characteristic tables
The local characteristic tables cross tabulates two or more topics. Due to the volume of data they are not available on Nottingham Insight, however can be accessed via the links below. They are available for Output Areas and larger geographies. The detailed characteristic tables are similar to local characteristics tables but provide considerably more detail about the topics, as they refer to larger populations. We have produced reports for Nottingham City based on the tables please e-mail Geoff Oxendale.
