About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Marlborough Road, Cardiff, Wales, CF23 5BT 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).
