OAC in Journal of Maps and the Telegraph

Posted by Alex

There are 3 interesting papers on OAC in the current issue of the Journal of Maps:

Visualising the Output Area Classification ( http://www.journalofmaps.com/crossrefMap.php?mid=1102)

Mapping the geodemographic classifications of migrants’ origins and destinations (http://www.journalofmaps.com/crossrefMap.php?mid=1106)

Rectangular Hierarchical Cartograms for Socio-Economic Data (http://www.journalofmaps.com/crossrefMap.php?mid=1090)

The final paper has also appeared as a piece in the Telegraph recently on ‘social tribes’ – available here.

Thanks to Jo Wood, Aidan Slingsby and Jason Dykes for the image, created the map as part of their work at City University London’s giCentre.

  • The Output Area Classification

    The Output Area Classification (OAC) distills key results from the Census for the whole of the UK to indicate the character of local areas.

    It profiles populations, structures other data, and helps target resources. OAC is in the public domain, and the User Group supports and promotes its use as geodemography open to all.
