LSOA Atlas 2012
JANUARY 2012 Demographics
This LSOA atlas provide a summary of demographic and related data for each Lower Super Output Area in Greater London. The average population of an LSOA in London in 2010 was 1,642 compared with 7,961 for an MSOA and 12,640 for a ward.
The profiles are designed to provide an overview of the population in these small areas by combining a range of data on the population, diversity, households, health, housing, crime, benefits, land use, deprivation, schools, and employment.
This table shows some of the most interesting indicators and displays the areas that are ranked top and bottom for each one. For example,
* LSOAs in Greenwich had the biggest population increase and population decrease.
* Population density ranges from 1 person per hectare to 821.
* In the LSOA in Greenwich that had the biggest population decrease, there was also the lowest number of crimes (17).
* The LSOA with the highest population density had the lowest consumption of power
* In an LSOA in Hackney over half of families have 3 or more children
* In an LSOA in Tower Hamlets 65% of children are in out of work families and 71% of children are living in 'poverty'.
If you need to find an LSOA and you know the postcode of the area, the ONS NESS search page has a tool for this.
The LSOA Atlas is presented using InstantAtlas mapping software. This is a useful tool for displaying a large amount of data for numerous geographies, in one place (requires Adobe Flash Player).
NB. It is currently not possible to export the map as a picture due to a software issue with the Google Maps background. We advise you to print screen to copy an image to the clipboard.
IMPORTANT: Due to the large amount of data and areas, the LSOA Atlas may take up to a minute to fully load. Once loaded, the report will work more efficiently by using the filter tool and selecting one borough at a time. Displaying every LSOA in London will slow down the data reload.
- - Select a new indicator from the Data box on the left. Select the theme, then indicator and then year to show the data.
- To view data just for one borough, use the filter tool.
