Variables of Living
This 3D graph plots three values for each of London's 624 wards:
- The median house price based on 2014 sales. Knightsbridge/Belgravia, with a median house price of £3.5m, is omitted.
- The average time it takes to travel from the geographical centre of the ward to Trafalgar Square in central London by public transport (train/bus/tube), for the next three journeys suggested by the Transport for London Journey Planner, on a weekday mid-morning in August 2015. Walthamstow area wards have a higher than normal result due to the temporary Victoria Line closure there. River Ward's centroid in Dagenham was moved north to public land.
- The score from the Index of Multiple Deprivation for 2010 (the 2015 data is due to be published next month). The score is a sum of scores based on measures on employment, education/skills/training, living environment, income, health/disability, barriers to housing/services and crime. A higher score indicates a more deprived area. The average score, across all LSOAs which have centroids within the ward, is taken.
