Information on electoral geographies can be found in the downloads, and in the Beginner's Guide section of the website.
Names and codes files are in CSV and dbf format, with accompanying metadata in HTML format. CSV and DBF files can be read in MS Excel format and all common database applications, HTML files can be displayed in any internet browser. The files all contain the new 9 character coding as well as the old style coding. For further information please see the Code History Database. Please note that Northern Ireland has not adopted the 9 character coding at present, so any information will still be in the current style coding.
Files can be downloaded free of charge.
