The Map of Life

The average Briton's adult life consists of University, London, suburb, retirement and then death.

At least that seems to be the major lesson from No Place Like Home, an interactive map exploring the life migration patterns of the British. The map visualizes migration data documenting the residential moves made by the British between local authority areas and regions.

Using the map you can select a town to view data on the numbers of people who have migrated to and from the town. You can even filter the data by age to see how many people move in and out of any town in different age groups.

A really nice feature of this map is the 'Stories' section which explores the migration patterns of the British at different stages of their life, including 'flying the nest, 'off to work, 'family time' and 'retirement'.
