I have a list of UK postcodes and a number of participants in a survey. I would like to map the first three letters of the UK postcode and I would like a shape....a circular shape for example which will show a figure and its size is relative to the figure, ie. 50% is half the size of 100% in each postcode area. This will show how many people participated from different areas.
I am totally new to QGIS and I was hoping that I could get a link to either a guide on how to do this, or link to practice data together with a step-by-step guide.
