How has UK society changed since 2001? What does the UK population look like in 2016? This unique atlas, the third in a bestselling series, uses a wealth of up-to-the minute data sources alongside the last 2011 Census data to identify national and local trends and provide analysis and discussion of the implications of these for future policy.
Fascinating information on everything from sex, age, marriage and ethnicity to qualifications, employment, housing and migration is provided in gloriously colourful maps and graphics.
Packed with at-a-glance data tracking the period from boom to bust and beyond to the new Conservative government of 2015, key features include the analysis of over 100,000 demographic statistics and the use of new cartographic projections and techniques, all laid out in an attractive and accessible format.
Put together, this is the most accessible guide to social change over the past 15 years in the UK.
