Ever wanted to access data for a non-standard area? Do you find that Borough and Ward boundaries don’t capture your area of interest? Try the Custom Area Reporter!

The Custom Area Reporter is a tool that enables users to build a ‘custom area’ from several standard boundaries (Wards, LSOAs (see Guide to Geography)). You can then generate a report for this ‘custom area’, providing a summary of all data themes on DataWand. You can even save ‘custom areas’ you have built for future use. See our How To section for a video tutorial!

This tool delivers the flexibility required to easily produce improved population estimates and other aggregated data for areas such as CCG Localities and development/planning areas.
