    UK Parliamentary Constituencies

    Hi

    I've a requirement to build territories matching UK Parliamentary Constituencies. What I can't find is either a ready made dataset or a list of which postcodes match which constituency.

    I'd be grateful for any pointers.

    Thanks

    Re: UK Parliamentary Constituencies

    If youíre looking to build territories based on parliamentary constituencies then probably MapPoint isnít the right package. The only building block available in MapPoint thatís small enough for that kind of purpose is the postcode sector, and postcode geography doesnít align with parliamentary constituencies.

    If itís of any interest I did some work plotting out output areas (smallest areas for which Census data is reported) by parliamentary constituency for the West Midlands, synthesising boundaries and then combining constituencies on different characteristics like Lab/Con/LibDem/Ind. The nice thing about doing it like this is that all the Census and updated demographics are routinely at hand. Anyway if youíd like to see what the constituencies look like plotted that way in MapPoint then pm me an e-mail address and Iíll send you through a couple of powerpoint slides.
