UK Postcode data August 2016

I’ve uploaded the latest data from the ONS to my website. I have run my usual sanity checks, let me know if you spot anything amiss

Hi
I'm looking at the postcode data for Sheffield. There are a number of postcodes in the form S95 1AA which I think must be wrong - these codes don't actually exist, I'm pretty sure. Are you able to have another look at these?

They look like non-geographic postcodes, you'll often get a number of postcodes at the same location that are used for PO Boxes etc. You'll see most of them are located near post offices as well

Hi Chris, does this include Northern Ireland

Jonathan Still said...

Sorry, found it

Chris Bell said...

The Northern Irish data is quite old because the licensing of it no longer allows me to publish the latest data. Your best bet is to to grab it from the ONS site if it's for internal use

The note on the page says that NI data is 2008, is that correct?

Thanks

Chris Bell said...

That's right

Ok, many thanks for quick response will have a look.
