Coding scheme

Notes: This new field consists of a 1-character alpha code derived from PCDR, the postcode of usual residence, during the batch, rederivation or online postcoding process. From the particular postcode record on the OGSS this code will eventually become the primary area type for regional statistics, replacing Standard Statistical Regions (SSR's), but for the time being, will be held on the database alongside the existing SSR code.
