The map tells us where the most and least 'socially fragmented' neighbourhoods are likely to be found. A model was originally developed by Professor Peter Congdon in 1996, to capture neighbourhoods at greater risk of a lack of social cohesion, isolation, and instability as an ‘anomie score’ in the local resident population.
Using other measures we can examine how it may relate to issues such as gambling prevalence, mental health, crime and public realm and help to guide resource-planning. We have used 2011 small-area census data; a detailed methodology can be read here.
