Postcodes have been used for many years as a means of locational referencing of events for the processing and analysis of statistical data.

Our postcode products allow you to relate a postcode to administrative, electoral and a wide range of other geographic areas.

National Statistics postcode products contain both live and terminated postcodes, which means that they grow in size with each new version and currently contain over 2.5 million postcodes for the UK.

They are released quarterly in February, May, August and November each year.

You can find further information about postcode products below.
