The Royal Mail produce a Postcode
Address File (PAF) containing every known deliverable address in the
UK. This file consists of both business and residential
properties. As licenced product sellers for the Royal Mail, we
take a regular feed from them and filter the 28 million addresses on
the PAF file. We run statistical counts to determine how many
sites fall within a postcode sector and record the results onto our
postcode sector to address file.

Most of our customers use this file to overlay property density onto "heat" maps that show
how busy / hot a postcode sector, district or area is. The maps can show residential and
business sites separately. Other clients such as door drop agencies will use the file to
help prepare their quotes. Quotes to customers become more accurate if they know how many
homes they will be delivering to.
There are three files supplied within this download. Each of the three files shows the
number of business properties and the number of residential properties held on the Postcode
Address File. File (1) shows these values at Postcode District level, File (2) at Postcode
Sector, and File (3) at full postcode.
