3<p>We currently have postcodes for
4<a href="http://www.npemap.org.uk/stats/">80%</a> of the postcode prefixes
5(eg the OX12 part of OX12 5AB) in the UK. We think this is pretty much all
6the prefixes we can currently get, with the remaining 20% being in Northern
7Ireland, and the parts of Scotland for which we lack maps.</p>
8
9<p>With that in mind, we've started tracking another measure of our progress.
10This time, it's the number of postcode sectors we have. (A postcode sector
11is the prefix &amp; the next digit, eg 'OX12 5').</p>
12
13<p>Currently, our sector coverage is 55%. There's no reason why it shouldn't
14be almost as high as our prefix figure, so that leaves quite a few more
15sectors for which we have maps, but no postcodes.</p>
16
17<p>So, that's our next target - get the sector coverage up to the same level
18as our prefix coverage. Now's the perfect time to start entering postcodes
19for that little bit further away than you have been already!</p>
