Notes: This field is present from 1996 onwards only. The code is derived from PCDR, the postcode of usual residence, during the batch, rederivation or online postcoding process. The Postcode is matched against field CTYX held on the OGSS file PNAACHyy (where yy = year of file). This file will be in existence for the LGR transition period and is known as the 'History File' (because it holds details of both old and new area codes). Unitary Authorities replacing, or created within existing counties to reflect their historic ties. The same code range, two character numeric, is proposed as for counties ie NEW 00 - 99 (00 for county/county districts ie non-UAs).
