About the Demographic Information

The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Knutsford Street, Birmingham, B12 9SR is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011.

The census collection is designed so that each group of postcodes should contain at least 100 people (50 in Scotland).
