Population estimates from the publication: Population disruption: estimating changes in population distribution in the UK during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Population estimates were aggregated to Local Authority Districts (LADs).
Population estimates were extracted from Bing Tiles (Zoom Level 12) to 2019 LADs by assigning tiles to LADs by their percent areal overlap. This method assumes constant population distribution across a single Bing Tile.
2019 LAD boundaries are available from the UK Government Open Geography Portal.
