ONS Cluster Dataset


benchmarks health outcome and health determinant data for Cambridgeshire's local authority districts against national and Office for National Statistics (ONS) cluster averages.  ONS clusters are groups of local authorities that are socioeconomically and demographically similar and hence can represent a more valid comparator group for each district than using the national average.


ONS are currently updating their clusters of local authorities following the 2011 Census - for more information, see http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/geography/products/area-classifications/ns-area-classifications/index.html
