Geo-targeting Project [13-25]
The open_postcode_geo.csv file can be imported using the code below:
filename postcode '/folders/myfolders/Geo-targeting/Data Files/open_postcode_geo.csv';
data all_postcode (keep=postcode os_x os_y);
infile postcode dsd firstobs=2;
input postcode : $8.
col1 : $10.
col2 : $5.
area : $8.;
if area = "England" and os_x^=.;
This reads in all the postcodes in England (2.1 million records).
This is a fairly large file!
Note: there is a warning in the SAS log due to some of the unidentified coordinates.
This does not affect our analysis and we will ignore them for now.
