Estimates for London wards and LSOAs

ONS released estimates for wards on 30 January 2023. They best-fit whole Output Areas to wards “where SDC rules allow”. I haven’t yet checked if this includes all data for which MSOA estimates have already been published.

CIS estimates will be published on this page based on ONS data published for OAs. CIS estimates so far are

  • Demography and Migration tables (published on 2 November 2022),
  • Ethnicity, Language and Religion (published on 29 November),
  • Labour Market (published on 8 December),
  • Housing (published 5 January 2023), and
  • Qualifications, Health, disability and care (published 19 January 2023).
  • Estimates split OAs at ward boundaries and apportion data as necessary so will not be the same as the ONS best fit figures. CIS estimates cannot be produced for data not published for OAs.

    Estimates are provided as excel spreadsheets and include comparable figures for 2011. Where additional detail is possible for 2011 data, it is given on this page.
