2012-2 Postcode Extract Files

Correction and Revisions

We have made some small revisions to the files below since they were initially published. For more details please refer to the Geography Revisions and Corrections page.

The extract database is created using systems on the database server, to run this system everyone should be out of the server. The 2012/2 extract was run during 2011 Output Area production so there was some access to the server which could have caused this issue.

Please note: The files below are Zipfiles or Portable Document Format (PDF), the following files are quite large so may take a few minutes to download.
