Poor show, old bean.


Lord Cholmondeley


I say. I'm frightfully sorry old bean. That postcode isn't on my list, so I can't tell for sure how posh you are.

Terribly beastly when these things happen. I have around 99.9% of all postcodes in England and Wales. If you're in Scotland or Northern Ireland then I'm afraid you're out of luck.

Please do accept my apologies. Perhaps when my daughter Arabella gets back from the equestrian centre she can help me to fill in the gaps. She's such a good sport and she's awfully good with these computer thingamybobs.

Why not pop over to the home page and search for an alternative postcode.

Where do I get this poppycock?


Ahhh, now you're asking all the right questions, my chum.

You'll be rather pleased to hear that although this tomfoolery is just a bit of fun, the information behind How Posh am I is rather more authoritative.

When you furnish me with your postcode I cross-reference this information with millions of records of official information in my vast (and rather superior) brain. I am, after all, part of society's intelligentsia.

The information I use to find out how posh you are is derived from local authorities, the Office of National Statistics (ONS), Census 2011 records, and other rather insightful databases that enable me to judge you and your social class... by your postcode alone!

Before you get your knickers in a twist, rest assured that I cannot identify any personal information about you - or others - in your neighbourhood. Each postcode I evaluate for society's riff-raff may contain dozens of properties; perhaps more if you are unfortunate enough to live in a frightful terraced house.

Do head over to www.zoomlocal.co.uk if you are interested in a more professional insight into your neighbourhood. These chaps are the renowned experts in producing Neighbourhood Reports that are a marvelous help when deciding where to move house to. Because we all should strive towards a better social class, what what.


ZoomLocal

ZoomLocal's spiffing Neighbourhood Reports tell you everything there is to know about any postcode, including demographics, crime rates, house prices, environmental concerns, local transport, and much more old chap.

It takes away the guesswork and risk of moving house to a bad neighbourhood. Both you and I know this is frightfully important to avoid the riff-raff.

Right, I'm orf. Don't forget to tell someone else about this spiffing website to inspire them towards a higher social rank too. Toodle pip.

For the frightfully dull.


My good wife Lady Elizabeth has quite rightly informed me that the more perspicacious of you may be interested in the data behind my analysis of your social standing.

Of course, without research it's extremely tiresome for me to determine your social standing without referring to the odd snippet of data.

So, without further ado, here are the individual scores for income, employment, education et cetera.

As well as cross-referencing your neighbourhood with ONS data, I also analyse other records in ZoomLocal's voluminous amounts of data to allow me to determine how posh you are.

Using my vastly superior mind, I can then determine your neighbourhood rank, and of course establish your social class.

By jove, it's clever stuff. Go ahead, take a gander at how it's done:

RANKPERCENTILE*

Education48231

*Percentile: used in statistics indicating the value below which a given percentage in a group fall. For example, if your percentile is 8, then 80% of postcodes score better than you.

Have a good nosey


Curious to know what other peasant's posh scores are?

Well, my old chum, here's a list of the most recent postcodes that the riff-raff have been daft enough to ask me about.

Go ahead, have a good gander. Feel free to chuckle at other people's misfortunes, why don't you.

I've also got a live leaderboard to see if any of you oiks think you can match my perfect score of 100%.
