The distribution of housing price inflation in Britain, 1985/1986.

Grey shades of a fixed equalized scale of housing price inflation from building society records in 10,444 wards on the equal population cartogram (Appendix D) software by author on an Archimedes computer.

By the mid 1980s the picture has become generally lighter, particularly in central London, although ironically, that is also where the few darkest spots remain. A fall has begun as the oil money runs out in Aberdeen, but in general an even gradually sloping geography of change is established. Most of the country shows an average of around 9 to 12% housing price inflation.
