About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about London, E5 8YJ is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011. They are performed once every 10 years. Please note: census information may include figures for adjacent streets and postcodes. 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. You can see the area covered by the census statistics by clicking "Show Census Area Covered" below the map above.

Social Grade Embed This
Social Grade approximations are derived from an algorithm created by the Market Research Society.

Only household reference persons between the ages of 16-64 are included.

Age Groups Embed This Back to Top
Across the UK as a whole, the median age is 39. In general, inner city areas show high concentrations of people aged 18-30, suburbs show larger numbers of small children and adults aged 30-50, and rural and small towns are more popular with older workers and retirees. Many poorer areas lack a majority age group, which is due in part to the people in that area being constrained by circumstance rather than being able to choose where to retire, raise a family or grow up.

The number of residents who are separated in E5 8YJ is high - 7% of the area's population. This contrasts with a national average of just 2.7%.
Figures for relationship status do not include those aged under 16, or those family members aged 16-18 who are in full-time education.

However, this area of the Hackney Downs ward shows lower levels of residents that report their health as Good or Very Good (70%) than average, which is usually indicative of areas with older populations or areas of social deprivation.
