Neighbourhood statistics



I've had a few enquiries recently about how to find population and other demographic statistics for very specific geographic areas of the UK. For Scotland, the 'Scottish Neighbourhood Statistics' website provides, for free, a wide range of small area statistics including information on health, education, poverty, unemployment, housing, population and population density, crime and social/community issues. A similar service, 'Neighbourhood Statistics', is offered via the website of the Official for National Statistics and covers the whole of the UK.
