About the Demographic Information

The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Cowbridge Road East, Cardiff, Wales, CF11 9XB 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). 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.
