About the consultation
The consultation was launched on 23 October 2013 and closed 12 February 2014. Respondents could complete the response form online or submit a paper version. The consultation sought views on provisional 2011 Data Zones, 2011 Intermediate Zone boundaries and the calculation of Data Zone centroids.
The consultation paper (http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2013/10/2961) set out the background to Data Zones and why the Data Zone geography needs to be redrawn. The paper also included information about how the Scottish Government produced the draft 2011 Data Zones, and details of how to access proposals the Scottish Government made for the redraw of Data Zones.
The consultation paper asked for comments on three questions:
- Are you content with the proposed 2011 Data Zones?
- Do you agree that 2011 Data Zones should use the median methodology for the calculation of centroids?
- Are you content with the proposed best-fit 2011 Intermediate Zone?
