Description

Dear user support

Do you know of a way of combining the urban rural categories of a_ur01ind-c_ur01ind for England & Wales with those for Scotland, and Northern Ireland that goes beyond a simple urban/rural dichotomous measure? For example a three or four level measure that provides a greater understanding of the variability of local context?

Has anyone done this successfully, or is it always necessary to stratify by country when analysing the data beyond the urban/rural dichotomy?

Many thanks in advance!

Andy

There does not seem to be an official UK-wide classification (cf. devolved IMD debate). Rural statistics department at DEFRA or the authors of the new 2011 classification for England-Wales could be leads to follow? Will leave open for now in case of other user feedback.
From a different angle - we are releasing lookups to OAC01 and will be releasing lookups to OAC11- both with some discrimination of rural communities.

Many thanks for such a prompt response Jakob! I will do that. Could you also let me know where I can find further detail on those lookups you mention, and when are you hoping to release these?

All best wishes

Andy
