UK postcode data for February 2019

I have uploaded the latest UK postcode data from the ONS to my website. I’ve run my usual sanity checks and everything looks OK but let me know if anything appears amiss. Enjoy all the 2,611,698 postcodes (alive and dead)

Hi there, what year and date is the population data from? And could you include the reference link to the original source of data?

The population data is from the 2011 census, probably a bit out of date but don't think there's much else available. The original data can be found at https://www.ons.gov.uk/census/2011census

Hi Chris

Where do you get your street data from please i.e. the known addresses for each postcode?

Thanks

They are from the Land Registry property sales data, so they won't be complete

Hi,

Great resource for mapping postcodes.

I'm trying to draw a polygon of some new builds but the sector isn't part of the "Postcode areas/polygons as KML" download option.
Do these get updated with the uploads?

thanks.

I'm in the process of creating new area KMLs but it's a bit of a long-winded job
