Best fit of lower super output areas to built-up areas

Linking the published built-up area classification from Office for National Statistics (ONS) with the lower super output areas (LSOA) level for Wales.



ONS have previously published the classification of built-up areas at the output area level. The report shows the calculation of a best fit for built-up areas at the LSOA level. Given the greater range of data sources available for LSOA this may be helpful for a range of analytical and policy purposes.
