Geographies in Hertfordshire

We try to provide data at as many of these geographic levels as possible:

  • County
  • Districts and boroughs
  • County electoral divisions (EDs)
  • District electoral wards (Wards)
  • Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs). Small enough to be considered neighbourhoods
  • Quadrants.  Used by our Family Centres.

For an explanation and illustrations of each geography, see the Geographic Areas Covered section of the user guide: Herts Insight - What it is and how to use it. (arcgis.com)

The Office for National Statistics provide summaries of UK geographies. They also offer resources to support the use of geography in statistics in their Open Geography Portal.

Alternatively, please see Hertfordshire Specific information: Administrative areas – some definitions.
