OPERAT scoring

Use the scoring sheet at the back of the OPERAT handbook to manually calculate the subscale scores for Natural Elements; Incivilities and Nuisance; Navigation and Mobility and Territorial Functioning and a final OPERAT score for a postcode. If you are scoring by hand (manually), then work your way across the sheet following the instructions for each item: assign a value to the observation that you made, perform any calculations that the item may require, code if necessary, and multiply the score by the weighting value.

Alternatively, for a simpler automated version, use the form below to calculate the scores for the subscales and a final OPERAT score for a postcode




After scoring all subscales and the final OPERAT score (either manually or automated) upload these on the OPERAT map page.

If you have a batch of data which you would like to upload (for example, more than 20 results), you can send this to us in spreadsheet format (*.CSV or *.XLSX/XLS format) whereupon we can arrange for it to be imported directly into the database.
