The Get Digital Heatmap shows the likelihood of digital exclusion across the UK at local authority level. It uses eight different digital and social metrics to calculate the overall likelihood of exclusion. The heatmap was developed with the Local Government Association and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and draws on research from the 2017 Get Digital Skills Survey, also produced in association with Lloyds Banking Group.

Common causes of digital exclusion are lack of skills or the confidence to use them; lack of access to infrastructure and fast broadband; the cost of devices and fees for broadband subscription and mobile data; and a lack of personal motivation to value the gaining digital skills as relevant and important.
