Population Radius Tool (England and Wales Only)
By combining the 2011 Census Data, and the OS Postcode mapping, this tool will calculate the approximate numbers of people residing within various radiuses of the location specified.
Currently only residential Postcodes or OSX/OSY pairs will work.
(please enter in the form 'PR12BU' or '353500,429500')
Please Note: This may take up to one minute depending on how busy our servers are.
Only residential postcodes will work with this service, and please remember that as time passes, postcodes can change, and the census data becomes less accurate.
If you do not have a residential postcode, streetmap.co.uk may be useful to obtain an OSX/OSY coordinate.
If you are interested in more information about how these numbers are calculated, please have a look at this Traffic Data Technology Blog Entry.
