This land is also more densely populated than farmland in general. The land which contains the least people per hectare is moorland and upland. Together with the “other” category this constitutes one fifth of the land area of Britain but houses only 1% of the population. The “other” category includes wards with large lakes in their centres and other such oddities. The final category of land shown here is woodland and parkland. More than two dozen wards in London, as the cartogram shows, fall into this group when classified using remote sensing techniques.

Occasionally wards are allocated to different constituencies and new constituencies are created. Maps drawn here of the results of elections up to 1979 use individual cartograms for each year, which differ slightly from this cartogram because of past boundary changes. General election results from 1979 to 1992 have been calculated for the frozen 1983 constituency boundaries which are shown on this page and which are defined exactly in the above ward lists. Boundary changes which have occurred since 1983 are also described above.

Agricultural land varies in quality so one subgroup has been extracted here — good arable land. In many countries it was the initial distribution of the best farmland which influenced many later developments, and Britain is no exception. The best agricultural land is to be found predominantly around the lowlands of the rivers Humber, Severn and the Ouse, in Kent and amid the claylands of East Anglia. This land is also more densely populated than farmland in general. The land which contains the least people per hectare is moorland and upland.
