LOAC, London Output Area classification

Ageing City Fringe (Super Group)
Many of the residents in this Super Group are over 45, and many are above state pensionable age. There are high levels of marriage and established White residents are very much in evidence. By contrast, representation of ethnic minorities and EU migrants is very low, relative to the London average. Much of the dwelling stock comprises semi-detached and detached houses, occupied at low residential densities. Levels of qualifications are low, as might be expected for these age cohorts. Private vehicle ownership is high, with some households possessing two or more vehicles. Levels of unemployment are very low. Employment is drawn from a range of sectors and this is the only Super Group in which agriculture is an important source of employment.
Detached retirement (Group)
These neighbourhoods have much higher levels of elderly and very elderly residents than the London average. Many live in detached houses. Although predominantly White British, there are also significant numbers of Indian residents.

About London Output Area classification

The ability to understand the characteristics of an area and its population is crucial to decision making. At a time of constrained finances across all sectors of service delivery, getting resource allocation right is of paramount importance. Of equal concern are the costs associated with acquiring the evidence needed to make those informed decisions. This is where the newly launched London Output Area Classification (LOAC) comes into its own.

As an open source geospatial classification, the LOAC uses a combination of over 60 Census variables to classify every single small area in London within a hierarchical structure.
