Counts Step 1 - Type of Selection

BPH can provide Address Extracts using a number of different standard selection criteria as follows:

  1. County (Postal, Traditional or Administrative)

  2. Post Town (e.g. CAMBERLEY)

  3. Postcode Area (e.g. GU)

  4. Postal District/Outcode (e.g. GU16)

  5. Postal Sector (e.g. GU16 7)

  6. Administrative District (e.g. SURREY HEATH)

  7. Electoral Ward (e.g. FRIMLEY)

  8. Locality (e.g. FRIMLEY GREEN)

  9. Radial Area defined around either a postcode or Easting/Northing coordinates (see below)

  10. Define your own area with Map-a-Polygon

Please Note:

  1. Searches based on Postzon (i.e. Radial search, Electoral Ward or LA District) and Traditional/Admin County Alias fields will not return counts for all records as approximately 5% of postcodes are un-coded - mainly Large User PO Box postcodes.
  2. Selecting "residential" returns counts for address records that have not been attributed to an "organisation" on PAF®. This may include a very small number of business or industrial premises where the organisation names are not present (i.e. empty units).
  3. Counts using either the Radial search or Map-a-Polygon options are based on coordinates allocated by OS to the approximate centre of a unit postcode.
  4. All address extracts are unit postcode based - a unit postcode covers an average of 15 properties in the UK but may cover between 1 and 100.
