Prof Keith Dugmore
  • Honorary Professor
  • Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis
  • Faculty of the Built Environment
Keith Dugmore has exceptional experience in the use of demographic and geographic information to support decision-making in both public services and commercial companies. On receiving an MSc at Reading University, Keith started his career as a statistician in 1972 in the Population Studies Section of the Greater London Council and then gained experience at Haringey and Islington Councils. Whilst at LAMSAC and MVA Systematica he managed the SASPAC 1981 census analysis software (which won the British Computer Society Social Benefit Award) and data products including the ED-LINE 1991 digital boundaries (which won the Association for Geographical Information Industry Award).

Keith also worked for the market analysis company CACI for two spells, firstly setting up its Public Services Group, and latterly as  Director of its Financial Services Group. He set up his own company,
Demographic Decisions, in 1996 to provide impartial consultancy advice to users  of demographic data. In 1998, Keith also established the Demographics User Group (DUG) to represent to government the interests of large commercial users of public data. It has 15 blue chip members such as Barclays, E.ON, M&S, Tesco and Whitbread. 

Research Summary
Keith has helped to build strong ties between the Demographics User Group members and UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis.  This started in 2001, and has taken several forms:

• Reporting UCL news to each quarterly DUG meeting

• DUG members’ sponsoring of UCL MSc projects, with an annual Award being given for the best one

• Support as industry link advisor for the GEOVUE (GEOgraphic Virtual Urban Environments) project

• Co-operation on particular initiatives, such as Post Office locations, and promoting the use of ONS’s OAC area classification (having initiated the OAC User Group)
