A total of 92 variables were used to classify the 8,154 workplace zones in London.

A list of workplace zones by LWZC Group and Sub group can be found in LWZC Classification.xls and underlying data are in Workplace zone dashboard.xlsx

Pdf maps showing the classification for each borough are in LWZC borough maps.zip and a tool to explore the classification is at https://data.london.gov.uk/census/lwzc/visualisation-tool/

A detailed description of the Groups and Subgroups is given in the LWZC user guide.pdf with more detail on data and methodology in LWZC Technical Report.pdf
