Using Mosaic in MAST reports
Dimensions and Indexed Reports
MAST links STATS19 drivers and casualties to Mosaic by using postcodes. This makes it possible to expose the socio-demographic profiles of the communities where they live in the Driver Mosaic and Casualty Mosaic dimensions.
MAST also provides indexed reports, which compare the Mosaic profiles to the underlying population.
Mosaic provides the detailed anaysis which underlies MAST's Similar authorities feature.
Using new Mosaic
Reports created using Mosaic 2003 have automatically been updated to the newest version of Mosaic. It is likely that in reports previously created in MAST (pre-September 2011), Group z was unchecked so that unknown postcodes were not displayed in the report.
In order to see all the new Groups within the newest version of Mosaic, click on the filter button and make sure Groups K to O are checked.
Converting existing reports between different versions of Mosaic
All reports which were created using Mosaic 2003 have automatically been updated by MAST in order to reflect the most up-to-date socio-demographic profiles of drivers and casualties. This means that Mosaic reports are using the most recent version by default.
