PhD Title: Hybrid geodemographics and creation of the 2021 Output Area Classification

Abstract: This PhD research will study the structure of existing geodemographic classifications (2011 and 2001 Output Area Classifications) to devise suitably adjusted software to create the 2021 OAC when the 2021 small area Census statistics become available. Importantly, the research will also focus on how administrative and consumer data can be used to support and supplement Census outputs. This will allow to develop methods for regularly updating Output Area Classifications. Finally, the study will utilize consumer data to characterise the overall activity patterns associated with neighbourhoods, and their interrelatedness with workplace zone geographies.


Jakub is a PhD Student at the UCL Geography Department, supervised by Professor Paul Longley and Professor James Cheshire. He was born and raised in Warsaw, Poland from where he moved to UCL to do his undergraduate degree in BA Human Geography with Quantitative Methods. Throughout his studies, he has developed his interest in cartography and data analysis by discovering how the interplay of these two fields of knowledge can be used to solve real-world problems at both local and global scales.
