2011 UK Output Area Classification Consultation

The ONS are working with the University College London to develop a new UK Output Area classification (OAC) using the 2011 Census data. This will update the 2001 classification previously produced by the University of Leeds.

A user engagement exercise runs from 17 February to 30 March 2012 and is aimed at users of the 2001 OAC but also relevent to anyone interested in social area classifications, involving geodemographics and neighbourhood classifications. For more information and a copy of the User Engagement form visit the ONS website.
