The Open Atlas Project provides a
book of maps for each local authority area in England and Wales,
at a much finer level of geographical detail than the map on this page.
Data: Adapted from data from the Office for National Statistics licensed under the Open Government Licence v.1.0.
The data was downloaded from the Key Statistics
tables on Nomis.
The boundaries are from a generalised (simplified) file from the

The map is rendered using D3 and Leaflet.

d3noob. The legend is based on
a map by
To prepare the data, I used an R script similar to the

The ward polygons were simplified using mapshaper.
