||The aim of the project was to identify sources of population data to be used in major accident hazard modelling and quantitative risk assessment (QRA). Requirements include national cover and a level of detail that takes into account the diurnal changes in population patterns. Postcode geography was used as a foundation, enriched by cartographic data, remotely sensed land use data, postcode data, commercial directories and other socio-economic data. The project has shown that significant advances are possible in the quality, diversity and accuracy of population data used in major accident hazard modelling and QRA. The enhanced data can be used for the assessment of pipeline, transport and fixed site risks, for making changes to accident modelling assumptions to reflect variations in population vulnerabilities, for the development of macro-level indicators of changes in population exposure to risk and for the use of data in regulatory impact assessments.
