Welcome to P2 People & Places - The cost-effective geodemographic classification

P2 is a comprehensive geodemographic classification from Beacon Dodsworth. It describes the different types of people that live in the UK and is available using postcode or administrative geography to fulfil both public and private sector requirements.

Built using Census and lifestyle data, it classifies the UK population and provides detailed descriptions about people’s lifestyles, attitudes and behaviours. P2 covers a wide range of topics such as:

 Background  Location  Housing  Employment
 Transport  Leisure  Spending  Health

P2 data is suitable for customer focused businesses, organisations that deliver services and institutions conducting academic research or study.
