The HealthACORN classification, which breaks down the population of Great Britain into four socio-demographic groups, 25 types and 60 sub-types, was developed using the combined expertise of CACI and TNS. HealthACORN provides an analysis of the diet, health, exercise characteristics and demographic attributes of communities in every part of Great Britain.
The HealthACORN classification variables include: postcode, large user flag, deleted flag, total population, total households, HealthACORN group and HealthACORN type. Further information may be found on the HealthACORN User Guide. Data are available at unit postcode level.
The study has been de-catalogued by the UK Data Service, as it has been withdrawn by the depositor. However, it is available on CD-ROM from the Data Library team.
