Geography and Boundaries

In order to analyse data for an area we use various administrative and statistical geographic boundaries to divide up the county. This section provides an introduction to the most commonly used boundaries, as well as maps, a postcode lookup tool and MAIDeN profiles.


View our guide to geographies.

Gloucestershire Land Area

Find the land area of Gloucestershire and its districts, based on ONS standard area measurements.

Postcode Lookup Tool

Find out which District, Ward, Parish, LSOA, Electoral Division, Children and Young Peoples' Locality, and Childrens' Centre Area your postcode is in using this Excel workbook.

(Note that the workbook is in .xlsb format to reduce the file size; this should open as normal in Excel.)

Maiden Profiles

View MAIDeN neighbourhood profiles for different geographies.

(Note that this only has profiles for the following geographies:
Districts; Electoral Ward; LSOA; Children's Centre; and CYP Locality)

The old style profiles can still be found here.
