    These statistics are complete rubbish. Apparently Edinburgh's central postcode is PR4 3HP which is in the middle of Lancashire according to Google Maps, and we are a Type 6 (i.e. farming... in an internationally important city with 500k inhabitants - that's accurate enough huh? :lolwut:) with a higher rate of sex crimes than the Scottish average?

    I haven't heard so much nonsense since Saif Gaddafi went on TV that night.

    Often, many of the people who live in this sort of postcode will be young educated workers living in flats. These are known as type 17 in the ACORN classification and 0.76% of the UK's population live in this type.
    Neighbourhoods fitting this profile are found in Scottish cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee, and in English towns such as Brighton, Cambridge, Bath and Southampton.

    There are many young people in their twenties in these densely populated areas. Most are working, but there is also a significant number of students. The majority live on their own in small flats, which will be either purpose built or conversions. Given this type is often found in Scotland, tenements will also be common. These young people are well qualified, with levels of NVQs, A-Levels and degrees well above average. They are early in their careers and have modest incomes, which should continue to rise. This does mean they are unlikely to have any financial investments. Living close to the centre of activity, in terms of both their work and recreation, there is little need for access to a car. Public transport, cycling and walking are the main options for getting around. Self-improvement and education are important to this group and they devote free time to both. They are busy people and enjoy socialising in bars, restaurants and coffee shops on a regular basis. They do not buy many newspapers, but The Guardian and Independent are most popular.


    Eerily accurate really.

    This is what I get for where I work in the centre of Norwich. Pretty accurate really and since that's where I want to move to in the near future I think it'll fit me quite well :cool:

    That's just a postcode error not an error in the surveying. I made a tiny bit of effort and just typed in the postcode of Waverley station to get this:

    Much more accurate.

    It's a pretty crude in some ways, but while it might not be 100%, you can kind of see aspects in both of mine.
