This dataset describes the 'Lower layer Super Output Areas' used by the Office for National Statistics for many of its statistical outputs.
This dataset is available for download in the format(s) below, or you can find out more on the About tab.
It is also available in queryable machine-readable form - see the API tab for details.
Note: These may be large files.
This dataset has been converted from a download of geography data from the Office for National Statistics Neighbourhood Statistics website. It provides information about Lower layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs), their location and the Local Authority District to which they belong.
Where a LSOA intersects with a parish, the dataset includes a link from LSOA to parish. Because LSOA and parish boundaries do not align, it is possible for an LSOA to intersect with several parishes. Note that parishes only exist in some parts of England, therefore there are many LSOAs with no link to a parish.
This is a linked data resource: it has a permanent unique uri at which both humans and machines can find it on the Internet, and which can be used an identifier in queries on our SPARQL endpoint.
Linked Data is stored in graphs. We keep dataset contents (the data) separately from the metadata, to make it easier for you to find exactly what you need.
