The changing distribution of housing by price, attributes and sales, 83/87 (Colour).

Trees are drawn, coloured by the change in the mix of voting at the general election, showing local housing market inflation (Appendix D) in the 633 mainland parliamentary constituencies on the equal population cartogram software by author on an Archimedes computer.

When the pattern of voting change is added to the picture of house price change, the relationship, if any, is not obvious. Some of the largest rises are to be seen in places which have turned away from the Conservative party. In the north, places with higher rates of growth tend to appear more orange than red; but any link must be tenuous. For whom are high house prices really advantageous?

Third print from a series of three.
