We find this site very useful and have done some community profiling with
it. However our library catchment areas are worked out by Postcode
(analysis of borrowers, backed up by the PLUS survey figures), and Postcode

site is promising to provide figures by enumeration district, which will
give smaller areas, but it would be a very time consuming to work out our
catchment areas by enumeration areas.
We would like to do some calculations which have a 'better fit' but at
present we can't find the time - what with Annual Library Plans, etc!
