Our database has been refreshed with the latest postcodes and updated boundary areas from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). All annual datasets from FY 15/16 will reference the new ONS data for Geography reports in the Observatory.
What will happen to historic Geography reports?
History will be frozen so any datasets prior to 15/16 will show the legacy ONS data. Therefore, if you compare FY 15/16 against a prior year then you will need to take this update into account and be sure that it is made clear in any geographic information you report.
Is there anything I need to do?
No, the 15/16 data will get automatically appended with the new ONS data.
