ONS’s new Wealth and Assets Survey – now analysed using OAC

Posted by Alex

Many OAC User Group members will be delighted to learn that not only has ONS coded its Wealth and Assets Survey with OAC, but there’s a paper “Exploring the geographical distribution of wealth using the output area classification” in the latest Economic & Labour Market Review (Jan 2011). http://www.statistics.gov.uk/articles/elmr/elmr-jan11.pdf – pages 59-78.

You’ll see some dramatic profiles of the variations in Total, Property, Pension, Financial and Physical Wealth by neighbourhood type.This follows the initial publication of a 174-page report on the Wealth and Assets Survey at the end of 2009: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/STATBASE/Product.asp?vlnk=15074

  • 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.
