New 2011 Census Datazones for Scotland now in SASPAC

21/11/2014

NRS have recently published the new 2011 Census Data zones and Intermediate zones areas – previously Census data has been published for 2001 DZ/IZ on a best-fit basis. The 2011 lookup tables are available to download from the NRS websiteDownload SASPAC Installer

These zones have been created by aggregating 2011 Census Output Areas (on an exact-fit basis). The SASPAC team have created Key Statistics, Quick Statistics and Local Characteristic datasets for these new zones and the System files are now available for download from our data page or a direct link to the System files is here (70MB .zip).

Data has been generated using SASPAC’s rezoning facility – remember you can create your own custom areas and all the steps are explained in Module 4b. When viewing these new geographies in SASPAC the zones will appear as flat trees (i.e not grouped by LAs), we are currently updating the software to incorporate these hierarchies and a software release will be available shortly.
