The data for this map was downloaded in R, using a script based on code from Alex Singleton's Open Atlas Project.

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.

See also the visualisations at the Office for National Statistics' 2011 Census interactive section. The maps marked Updated include data at a high level of geographical detail (LSOA level).

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 ONS Open Geography Portal.

The map is rendered using D3 and Leaflet. The code is largely based on tutorials by Mike Bostock and d3noob. The legend is based on a map by Ford Fessenden.
