Over the last couple of weeks we have been putting together data on local political representation and deprivation at a Local Super Output Area level. This data is put together using LSOA 2011 to Ward to Local Authority District 2016 with the English Indices of Deprivation 2015 Lookup in England from the Office of National Statistics and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government respectively, and local councillor affiliation data manually entered from the 326 council tax and business rates raising local authorities of England.
The open data can be found here and we will update it after the local elections in May – please read the README before using.
You can read more about how the dataset was constructed here

This month’s Open Data Manchester looks at how two local authorities are using data to deliver service.
Alison Mckenzie Folan and Alison Hughes from Wigan Council will show how they are using data and open data to help them engage the community, target resources and enhance services. Wigan Deal has been seen as an exemplar of engagement between the public sector, local businesses and community.
Jamie Whyte leads Trafford Innovation Lab which has been developing new and innovative ways to make open data understandable. The insight created has enabled community groups to use data to help them apply for funding, created resources for councillors and shown a spotlight onto the complex world of school admissions
Open Data Manchester events are spaces for learning, discussion and collaboration. The events are open and free
