Sources:

  1. These data were supplied by Danny Dorling and are based on unpublished data from the 1971 census aggregated to 1981 ward units.


Notes:

  1. The 1971 data, which are currently the only data in the table, come from the 1971 census, are given for 1981 wards, but the Local Government Districts listed are 1971 units. The locational data must therefore be used with some care. Others years have not yet been added to this table.
  2. The figures for the individual age groups 0 and 1 to 4, and the groups 75 to 79, 80 to 84, and 85 up, are Danny Dorling's estimates. The totals for 0 to 4 and for 75 up are the original data.
  3. This transcription covers England, Wales and Scotland.
  4. This table was previously called age_wards when it was held in Oracle.


Checking:

  1. The data are as supplied by Danny Dorling; no additional checking possible. NB the totals are computed from the data and cannot be used as check-sums.
  2. The higher level geographical units for England and Wales have been cross-checked against the GBHGIS administrative unit gazetteer. Each county and district level unit in this table has a unique unit ID assigned to it and this ID can be used to cross-reference against other data-sets. Scottish data is missing the county names and therefore has not be matched. Consequently the matching code for Scottish districts has not yet been added to the build script.
  3. The wards have not been matched to the auo as they currently do not exist in the gazetteer.
