Is anyone aware of any open UK demographic data (England would be sufficient) at full or out postcode level?

    What do you mean by "outer postcode"? Postcode area, district, sector, something else? ONS have demographics by Lower Super Output Area: ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/populationandmigration/… – Dan Winchester Sep 5 '17 at 21:14

    Outer postcodes are the first 2-4 characters. – cs0815 Sep 5 '17 at 21:16

    That part of the postcode is also known as the postcode district, outbound code, or outcode. I'm not aware of a dataset that gives you exactly what you need, but ONS has the demographic data by LSOA, and both postcode district and LSOA boundaries are available, so if you are handy with GIS you could approximate the demographics for postcode district. Happy to flesh this out in an answer if that helps. You could also contact the ONS directly and see if they have the data you need. – Dan Winchester Sep 6 '17 at 6:33

    Some data for England: ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/… – Stanislav Kralin Sep 6 '17 at 6:38

    Thanks England would actually be sufficient. Populations size is a good start but debt levels, unemployment rates etc would be needed too. – cs0815 Sep 6 '17 at 7:33
