Now to tidying your columns:

  1. Firstly, you must specify which row, if any, contains the headers for your data and which row contains your first row of data. If you do not have headers then choose 0 for the header and then 1 for the first row of data
  2. Next, tidy up your columns. You can only upload two columns of data: One column containing the standard area data (postcodes, LSOA codes, LA codes, etc.) and the other column containing a piece of numeric data. If you have other irrelevant columns, you can select to ignore them.
  3. Once this is complete, click Next Step
