Neighbourhood trajectories in Great Britain 1971-2011

The neighbourhood trajectories is a spatio-temporal classification of the demographic and socioeconomic profile of British neighbourhoods at 1 km2 grid level. The classification derived from gridded cell Census data for Great Britain from 1971 to 2011 with 10-year intervals. The dataset includes a geodemographic classification for each census year as well as the neighbourhood trajectory group by grid including a total of seven variables and 16,029 grids. Full methodology available in Patias et al. (2020).
