ONS releases Older People Mapping tool

Last year the Office for National Statistics (ONS) launched an interactive ageing mapping tool which allows users to analyse the age structure of the population over time at local level using indicators such as median age and percentage of population in different age groups.  Today, ONS launches version 2 of the tool which includes two new indicators – ‘sex ratios at age 65 and over’ (the number of males per 100 females) and ‘old age support ratio’ (the number of people of working age to the number of people of State Pension Age and over).  The new version of the tool also has added functionality, including a new facility to locate local areas of interest; the facility to display a chart showing the number of local areas in each category of each indicator; the facility to highlight and zoom in on specific local areas and the facility to export jpegs of static maps.
