Report published on revised 2011 Census based statistical geographies in Wales

Friday, 22 February 2013
The Public Health Wales Observatory has produced a report outlining the changes to the statistical geographies in Wales, based on the results of the 2011 Census.
Changes to statistical geographies in Wales 2001-2011 med
The report, entitled Changes to statistical geographies in Wales 2001 to 2011 (.pdf. 4.2MB), illustrates the differences between the statistical geographies released based on 2001 Census results, compared to those released in the more recent 2011 Census. The statistical geographies known as lower super output areas (LSOA) and middle super output areas (MSOA) are aggregations of Output Areas, the base units for Census outputs. They have been designed to be homogeneous and stable thus allowing more robust analyses and comparisons between areas.
Due to population change and adminsitrative changes, these geographies have been revised and the revisions are outlined in this report.
