Our research, carried out at the ESRC Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) and the UCL Urban Dynamics Lab, is exploring the generational and inter-generational residential movements of family groups across Great Britain, using historic censuses and recent consumer registers. The CDRC holds a number of novel consumer datasets that chart recent movements and changes, including the links between geographical and social mobility.

GBNames is intended to show interesting geographical patterns of names, rather than mapping individuals or families. We do not map or show statistics for names with less than 100 occurences per year. In total we have statistics for over 40,000 unique surnames; these names account for 88 per cent of the 2016 adult population in England, Wales, and Scotland. See Methodology page for further information on GBNames and methodology that we use.
