Methodology note for the 2011 area classification for output areas

Abstract

This paper outlines the methodology used to produce the 2011 Area Classification for Local Authorities. The classification places each of the 391 UK local authority districts into different groups (clusters) based on their 2011 Census characteristics, with similar local authorities grouped together. In this way, local authorities across the UK can be compared and classified according to their particular characteristics.
