Neighbourhood statistics site no longer exists!
« on: May 15, 2017, 12:44:27 PM »
Hello,
I'm beginning my A Level coursework lessons and my pupils are gutted to find the neighbourhood statistics site, which they have become 'experts' at using for Ward or LSOA data has now been closed. We have found NOMIS and are using the londondatastore maps but NOMIS only has ward level data. I'm a bit disappointed as I've got so many lessons referring to the neighbourhood stats site for GCSE and A level! Any other good suggestions would be fantastic, thank you! Alice

www.Datashine.org.uk is excellent, and largely based on LSOA outputs.

Datashine is brilliant!  Does anyone have a worksheet on it?

Yes, really disappointing that it disappeared...
NOMIS isn't really a good replacement as you say.
Details of Datashine developments are added here:

More ideas here: https://www.rgs.org/NR/rdonlyres/46EB70CA-5508-4FB6-9629-ECD718CDCB83/0/AShortIntroductiontoQuantitativeGeography.pdf

I'm working on a Datashine 'guide' for a writing project that should be finished over the summer... which is not much good for you right now of course.
