UK: Digital Exclusion Heatmap

Source: Go ON UK

From Press Release:

The Go ON UK Digital Exclusion Heatmap shows the likelihood of exclusion from a digital United Kingdom at Local Authority level....

Eight different metrics have been used to calculate the overall likelihood of exclusion. Four of these are digital metrics (infrastructure, access, Basic Digital Skills and Basic Digital Skills used), which have been aggregated to provide a combined digital indicator. Four are social metrics (age, education, income and health), which have been aggregated to create a combined social indicator.

These combined indicators have been further aggregated using a formula designed by the London School of Economics and Political Science to provide, for the first time, a single measure of predicted overall exclusion from a digital United Kingdom.
