Is it possible to get all UK census geographies in one file?

For example, I am currently looking at a table of data titled

Life satisfaction by country, region, unitary authority and county, April 2011 to March 2012

Which turns out to mean unitary authorities or counties, or local authorities in Scotland. Nevertheless each entry has its own code (e.g. E06000006). Is there a single shapefile that will match all of these without having to download all the geographies separately?


I have previously downloaded the data from this site which is run by the people behind MapInfo. It currently only has England and Wales, but hopefully that still save you a bit of time if you want the entire UK.

You should then be able to join your data table to this spatial dataset using Output Area code.
