About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Alcova Grove, Cradley Heath, B64 7AF is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011.

This is done to preserve the anonymity of the people in that area, as some postcodes cover a very small area, sometimes a single building. You can see the area covered by the census statistics by clicking "Show Census Area Covered" below the map above.
