Output Area

An Output Area (OA) is a GEOGRAPHIC AREA.

Output Areas are built from clusters of adjacent unit POSTCODES in the United Kingdom and are the base unit for Census data releases. Due to their smaller size, Output Areas allow for a finer resolution of data analysis.

For further information on Output Areas, see the Office for National Statistics website at: Glossary.
