This map and cartogram can be compared to Colour Prints A and B respectively. Inside cities the areas of low density often coincide with the places where the most affluent people live. These can be identified from the cartogram. Elsewhere the rings of very low densities, which on the cartogram circle the conurbations and on the map dominate the image, are also interesting. The large clusters of low density wards (in terms of population and hence area on the cartogram) are to be found around Norwich in Norfolk, in Lincolnshire and in North Wales.
Districts vary greatly in population. Like the ward cartograms in this atlas, every area is proportional to the size of its population. The district cartogram is used repeatedly in the atlas, partly because many of these cartograms can be placed on one page. For instance, it is used to show where people born in different parts of the world live in Britain on page 55 by drawing a cartogram for each group and to show how levels of unemployment changed over sixteen years using fifteen cartograms on page 97.
However, it is useful to know the geographical distribution of places where people are unwilling to answer the door or to return forms, or where they tend not to be at home. 9 shows, the rise with population density is not uniform. The map over-emphasises high rates of imputation in a few rural wards with very low populations. Unfortunately, the imputation procedure failed to compensate fully for all the people and households which were not enumerated. Nationally, 1 202 000 more people are thought to have been missed entirely by the 1991 census.
