About the Demographic Information

The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Foxtail Walk, Birmingham, B5 7ED is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011. They are performed once every 10 years. Please note: census information may include figures for adjacent streets and postcodes.

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