Percentage of Older Population


  1. Kate, this looks really interesting (and I love the timeline player) but can you explain a bit more about where the data comes from?

  2. Hi Nicola,

    The data is from the mid year population estimates (I believe) - this was a joint exploration with Yi Gong from Cardiff. The elderly falls data which the other post uses is taken from the neighbourhood statistics and uses hospital episode statistics for the time period for all Local Authorities in England. We also created estimated for MSOA but to visualize in the same way is simply very confusing.
