ACORNs

Postcode Portraits was a website I came across via a blog called the Daily Geographer.

The website takes a look at the idea of GEODEMOGRAPHICS, and the work of MOSAIC

A handy link from the site goes to a clip from the recent History of the Noughties programme...

There is loads of geography here with respect to the depiction of levels of income and relative inequalities...

Led me to the LANDSCAPE:PORTRAIT site (nice name :) )

Why not use a site like UP MY STREET to find out which ACORN type your neighbourhood, or the area around the school is, and then enquire into the accuracy of the description.

The area I live in is Type 34.....
