Download Government house price data for the entirety of UK and load it into ArcGIS Pro. Use the Join function to attach it to ONS shapefile of the local authority districts of England, removing the districts for Scotland and Wales.
England saw a record high in the average house price in 2022. However, this increase is not the byproduct of linear growth from previous years nor is it consistent across all areas of the country.
These maps explore the change in house prices by local authority district; before, during and after the Covid-19 pandemic from 2019 – 2022.
The colour scale effectively contrasts the difference between an increase in price, depicted in yellow, and a decrease in price, shown in blue.
To better represent the location of houses and their prices, the maps display the inhabited areas of the country which are then colour coded by price increase for the authority district they fall within.
The interactivity of the app enables the user to search locations on the map or use the table to view the data in a qualitative format.
