Geographies available for the Census 2011
Wards comprise of different populations and therefore do not provide a reliable means to compare areas across the country. As a result Output Areas and Super Output Areas were published in the last Census 2001, to enable analysis of small areas with similar sized populations.
Super Output Areas have become the standard geography for producing statistics and analysis for small areas.
Following various developments and demographic changes since the last Census in 2001, some changes have been made to the old boundaries to create, split or merge into new Output Areas and Super Output Area boundaries. These boundaries are now available on Insightmapping
