Further Information Around Demographic Data and GIS Mapping

*The demographic data, which relates to the structure of populations, is combined with the ‘socio’ data such as spending estimations, for example, what proportion of households income is spent on comparison goods, convenience goods, food and beverages, grocery and leisure.

**Comparing to the National Average highlights the attributes of your area and gives a benchmark to make meaningful comparisons.

***Drive time indices shows the estimated time boundaries for 30, 20 and 10 minutes duration away from a specific location using three modes of transport: driving, cycling and walking. The travelling distance takes into account access to motorways or dual carriageways or conversely, the absence of high speed roads.

The demographic information comes from a combination of the two last Government census’, conducted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in 2021 and 2011. The latest census information is not yet available and will be published in phases from 2022-2024.

Socio-Demographic data combined with the data sets from the Place Informatics dashboard are a powerful means to assess the characteristics of a population, analyse visitor behaviour and benchmark an area to spot trends and make informed decisions.
