Rural & Urban Area Classifications


Those users that accessed the 2001 Census data produced for urban and rural areas may be interested in an ONS survey looking at the proposed options for classifying these areas following the 2011 Census. More details on the project can be found here, along with a Google map showing the current boundaries. The consultation is open until 25 November 2011 and is being run by a project team that includes: Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs; Office for National Statistics; Department for Communities and Local Government; and Welsh Government.
