Peopletracer first to offer 2013 Electoral Roll data!

Posted on Thursday 13th December 2012

At Peopletracer, we know that in order to find a current address for someone you are looking for it.s important to have the most up to date information available. Over 20 thousand people change address every day in the UK! That.s 7 million every year so it.s no surprise that address books and contact details become out of date very quickly. That.s why we strive to provide our customers with the latest data at the earliest possible opportunity and are delighted to inform you that we have already integrated the 2013 Electoral Roll data into our search results, making us the first people search company to do so.

This release of new data will allow our customers to utilise the latest electoral canvass, which provides the most accurate overview of the UK's population. UK electoral data exists in two formats, the full Electoral Roll, which contains the entire electorate and can only be used for limited purposes and the edited Electoral Roll which we employ to help our customers with their people searches. The Electoral Roll opt-out rate for this year to date is 39.7%, a reduction of 0.6% compared to last year and is in contrast to the preceding years when opt-out rates were steadily increasing.

Commenting on the latest upload, Peopletracer.s Technical Director, Paul Weathersby remarked, "We strive every year to be the first to upload the newly released Electoral Roll data. The more current the information, the better the results we can provide. Our customers nowadays demand the most current and authoritative residency data available and our commitment to constantly update our data is paramount."

If you.d like to know more about how you can utilise the Electoral Roll to find who you.re looking for, view our Electoral Roll help page. We have over 240 million records to search automatically at your own fingertips. Interested? Sign up today in a matter of minutes.
