The Cambridgeshire Atlas | Census 2011 :Overview of health and unpaid care is a profile tool that displays data from the second release of census data. The atlas shows data at Census output area level. This is the smallest geography data from the Census is released. OAs contain approximately equal numbers of usual residents, and are intended to provide geographies that allow reporting of statistics across time on a consistent geographical base.

The minimum OA size is 40 resident households and 100 resident persons. The average number of persons in an OA is 309, and the average number of households in an OA is 129.
