Northern Ireland Council Lookup Tables

Align small geographical areas to (Small Areas, Output Areas and Super Output Areas) to their District Council (LGD) Areas.

This dataset contains four tabular files:

Existing SAs, COAs and SOAs do not fit neatly within Local Government Districts (the new Wards do). One-to-one relationships are based on a best-fit approach, based on the number of active domestic properties of an area falling within a district council area the case of boundaries of any area intersecting two or more LGDs. 

This method may result in different outcomes with the use of smaller geographies e.g. postcodes. Postcode relationship lookups (between postcodes and a number of different geographical units) are available here.
