About Somewhere To Move

The online hub for browsing English school performance, crime rates, and house price data

Somewhere To Move is a digital resource that provides information about the critical issues that matter when it comes to looking for a new place to live. We've compiled government statistics on crime levels, school performance, and house prices for the whole of England to provide a clear and intuitive picture of the country.
The data powering Somewhere To Move is aggregated from numerous official sources, and is tied together geographically using the Office for National Statistics Coding System. As a result of changing code boundaries over time, there are some areas where data cannot be accurately mapped. These can be seen as missing segments in certain charts and maps. The general approach has been to prefer gaps than substantial modification of the underlying data. The data sources used can be accessed from the corresponding section below.

While we have attempted to provide understandable relative comparisons, the underlying meaning behind these metrics may not be immediately obvious, and so a variety of resources are available below to assist in the interpretation of these metrics:
