IA National Data Service – 2022 Wards

Last updated: 23rd of March 2023

The ward geography in the National Data Service has been updated to 2022 wards and we have started progressively rolling this change out to customers’ data catalogs. We expect this process to be completed by the end of this month.

For InstantAtlas Data Observatory customers, this means that it will be possible to view Census 2021 data in ward-level standard outputs within the observatory website, wherever data was published at ward level (not all of the phase 1 datasets were published by ONS at this level).

The process of updating the designs of ward-level reports to replace Census 2011 data with Census 2021 data has begun, and will be ongoing until the end of the month.

This includes the ward-level reports used in the Custom Area Reporter app to show aggregated data for a custom selection of wards.
