Religion in Birmingham

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Been a while since I’ve posted something up here. Ah well. Maps of census data on religion in Brum:

Believe in Brum

Map uses middle level SOA’s rather than wards or lower level SOA’s; wards in Birmingham are just too big to show more than very broad patterns of anything, while lower level SOA’s are (in a city as big as Brum) tiny. But I might well make lower level SOA maps of some especially interesting areas at some point. Heh. Maybe even output area maps, although that might be a little silly.

Iowa Maps (pre-caucus)

Tuesday, January 1st, 2008

With the Iowa caucus now almost upon us, ’tis perhaps time to give local politics in Wales a break and look instead to, well, Iowa. First maps (by, of course, Dave) show past caucus results, just to get into the mood of things:



First map shows the 2000 GOP primary, second 2000 Dem, third 2004 Dem. Next some demographic maps (from 2000 census and surveys and so on)…

The general idea is that comparing the results (when they come in) with the above maps might give us an early indication of the sort of people each candidate has real appeal to. And now, to bed.

EDIT: 1. % employed in primary industries (read: agriculture), 2. % ” ” manufacturing, 3. ” ” finance and so on, 4. % in the public sector, 5. % managerial/professional, 6. % with degrees, 7. median hh income, 8. strength of Evangelical churches, 9. strength of Roman Catholic church.

And now to bed.

Municipal Elections in Wales II

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

Part II will be rather short, but is, I think, important regardless. The following maps, though just the tip of the iceberg, give a good indication of the class and cultural makeup of each local government area and should be compared with the maps of the 2004 elections in the previous post:

Things are, of course, even more diverse (both demographically and electorally) within each UA. More on that later.
