About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Boult Terrace, Houghton Le Spring, DH4 7DT 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.
