Choropleth map and dashboard
Oldham Neighbourhood Wellbeing Index. A modified traffic light scheme is used in the maps with red - indicating rates ranked in the highest 10% band, amber - the high 11-25% band, light green - the low 11-25% and dark green - indicating rates ranked in the lowest 10%. In maps displaying rates across the four themes, neighbourhoods with rates ranked in the 26-74% band are white, whereas in maps of trends and sudden changes, those neighbourhoods are shaded yellow, whilst those in white show no trend or sudden change. White is also used for neighbourhoods where no persistently high or low rates are detected. It is in this way that the maps themselves act as visual exception reports.

The supplementary charts display information about population proportions, population densities, age and gender structure, comparison between migration related and “natural” population change, fertility rates during the last 35 years and lastly population changes by government region during 2007-08. The display is very rich and is successful at grabbing’s the reader’s attention by offering an appealing combination of related data.
