About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Bramble Close, Houghton Le Spring, DH4 6TQ is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011.

The figures are therefore representative of the local area, not a specific street address or row of houses. 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.
