The distribution of British born place of birth, 1981 (Colour).

Three colour mixing of 129,211 census enumeration districts on an equal population cartogram software by author on an Archimedes computer.

This is a most colourful cartogram and shows some things that do have a regional and national pattern. The predominance of unusual numbers of Scots and Welsh in London is striking. The white areas are where the overseas born are in large numbers. It is interesting that the highest density of Scots is to be found in the centre of Glasgow. The orange tint to the South West peninsula is also notable. The most English places in Britain are Yorkshire and the North East. Corby is the concentrated dark green group South West of the Wash near the centre of England. It features distinctively as an outlier in many of the distributions which follow.
