The paper illustrates the use of contiguous cartograms for mapping the results of a cluster analysis of attitudinal data from the national Living in Wales survey. The analysis and mapping of Welsh national data at small geographical scales is not very common and this is the first time attitudinal data from the Living in Wales survey has been mapped at levels lower than the unitary authority using cartograms. The results demonstrate how Wales can be classified into geographically distinct areas based upon respondents' attitudes towards their neighbours and the neighbourhood within which they live. These areas broadly conform to other metrics used to classify Wales at small scales, such as deprivation indicators, commuting patterns and local housing markets areas. This suggests that people's attitudes towards their neighbours and their neighbourhood are broadly related to socio-economic, demographic and cultural factors that vary across Wales.
