UK National Statistics on Google Maps
The UK's Office for National Statistics is using the Google Maps API and Google Fusion Tables to help visualise a number of economic and demographic data sets.
The Income Estimates Map is a map that allows users to view the estimated average weekly household income for neighbourhoods throughout the UK. Users can click on a location or use the search box to search for an address and view the average weekly income in that area.
The Urban Rural Definition Map is a map of the UK showing whether each neighbourhood is designated as urban, rural or 'town or fringe'.
The Public and Private Sector Employment Map shows the subregional distribution of public and private sector employment and allows users to explore the distribution in their area.
The Households in Poverty Estimates Map provides estimates of the proportion of households in poverty in UK neighbourhoods.
