OAC used to profile Higher Education institutions
The interaction between an Higher Education institution’s spatial location, course mix and neighbourhood tariff profile reveals a considerable amount of information about the characteristics of people who apply to study at an institution. The OAC classification is used in this example to profile a series of anonomied HE institutions in London.
The data used to create these profiles are those students who attended the institution in 2001. The data came from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). The paper also makes use of Experian’s commercial geodemographic classification “Mosaic”.
