Collection description

This dataset offers public transport accessibility indicators aggregated by 2011 statistical geographies to a range of key services, namely: employment, general practices (GP), hospitals, supermarkets, primary schools, secondary schools, and urban centres. Accessibility indicators were estimated for all 41,729 LSOA/DZ in Great Britain. Origins are represented by LSOA/DZ population-weighted centroids based on the boundaries defined for the 2011 Census. LSOA’s centroids for England and Wales were produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and manually downloaded from the UK Government open data portal (https://data.gov.uk/) on 2021-12-12 (version last updated on 2019-12-21). DZ centroids in Scotland are published by the Scottish Government and were manually downloaded from the UK Government’s open data portal (https://data.gov.uk/) (version last updated on 2021-03-26).

A technical note describing the indicators is available at: https://zenodo.org/record/6759240
