Dataset description

This dataset contains "lsoa" a spatial dataset / layer of census areas for Liverpool from the UK Data Service and census attributes for these areas from Nomisweb (ONS); "oa" - the same source data as "lsoa" but at a different spatial resolution (LSOAs hold 1500 people and OAs hold 300); "properties" - this is house price data obtained from the Nestoria API. UK Census data can be downloaded from the Office of National Statistics (https://www.nomisweb.co.uk) and spatial layers of Census areas from the UK Data Service (https://borders.ukdataservice.ac.uk). The unemployment and age data were from the 2011 UK population census (https://www.nomisweb.co.uk <https://www.nomisweb.co.uk/>) and the greenspace proportions were extracted from the Ordnance Survey Open Greenspace layer (https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/opendatadownload/products.html). The spatial frameworks were from the EDINA data library (https://borders.ukdataservice.ac.uk). The OAs and LSOAs are both projected to the OSGB projection (EPSG 27700). The OA layer also has a geo-demographic class label (OAC) from the OAC (see Gale et al. (2016)) of 8 classes as introduced in earlier chapters. The properties data was scraped from Nestoria (https://www.nestoria.co.uk <https://www.nestoria.co.uk/>) on 30th May 2019 using their API.
