Output Area 2011

The smallest Census Area used, NRS created Output Areas (OAs) for the 2011 Census to allow comparability with OAs for the 2001 Census. The OAs were created as groups of postcodes nesting as well as possible into the following areas: Council Area (CA), and 2010 locality.

Any area for which Census output is produced is the aggregation of Output Areas (OAs) that approximate best to the area.

SNS Data Zone 2001

Datazones are the core geography for dissemination of results from Scottish Neighbourhood Statistics (SNS). The data zone geography covers the whole of Scotland and nests within local authority boundaries (as they were in 2001).

Datazones are groups of 2001 Census output areas which have populations of between 500 and 1,000 household residents.
