How can very recent UK trends in the years 2011-2015 be understood in the context of detailed maps of social change in the 10 years between 2001 and 2011? This unique atlas, the third in a bestselling series compiled by leading social geographers, uses the 2011 Census data, alongside more recent data sources, to identify national and local trends and provide up-to-date analysis and discussion of the implications of current trends for future policy. Packed with at-a-glance data tracking the period from boom to bust and beyond to the new Conservative government of 2015, key features include the analysis of over 100,000 demographic statistics; the use of new cartographic projections and techniques, all laid out in an attractive and accessible format. Put together, this is the most accessible guide to social change over the past 15 years, and is essential reading for all those working in local authorities, health authorities, and statutory and voluntary organisations, as well as for researchers, students, policy makers, journalists and politicians interested in social geography, social policy, social justice and social change. This is the only social atlas of the 2011 Census that explains so much about how all of the UK is changing.

Review:

"Using their trademark maps - hallucinatory visions that properly reflect populations - the authors tell us about the distribution of everything from wealth to same-sex couples, and what changes have occurred in recent years.  An extraordinary and graphically gripping resource." David Spiegelhalter, Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk, University of Cambridge.

"This is a brilliantly informative overview of UK society today, highlighting not only important national changes and trends but also the 'who' and 'where'.  It should be a starting point for any discussion of social policy." Diane Coyle, Professor of Economics, University of Manchester, and founder of Enlightenment Economics.

"Beautifully clear and endlessly informative, this atlas provides a fascinating yet sobering picture of the changing nature of the UK’s population." Alexander J. Kent, Reader in Cartography and Geographic Information Science and President of the British Cartographic Society.
"A superb and utterly fascinating insight into what our country actually looks like, and how it's changing. Both authors brilliantly and meticulously dissect society. A must if you want to understand modern Britain." Owen Jones, author and Guardian columnist.
