The paper assesses the accuracy of models of this type. Population counts for census output areas are reallocated to a 100 m grid and then compared with true population counts uniquely available from the 2001 Census. Kernel width and cell size are more important than the distance-decay parameter. The spatial scale of input data is more important than model parameters. More attention needs to be given to the varying spatial structures of population between places and incorporating this information through geostatistical approaches could yield further insights
