About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Princes Risborough, HP27 9WB 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.

Gender Embed This Back to Top
Across the UK as a whole, the gender split is roughly 49% male, 51% female. This part of the The Risboroughs ward however contains significantly more women than average (58%). This can be caused by a number of factors, but amongst the most common are large establishments such as boarding schools and convents, and areas with older populations.
Females on average live longer than males, so are more likely to be found in retirement areas. In general, as people age they move away from city centre addresses to suburbs, smaller towns and rural locations, so these areas often show a greater number of females, with inner city areas showing the opposite trend.
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.
Relationship Status Embed This Back to Top
In the immediate vicinity of HP27 9WB the number widowed residents is high - 25% of the area's population. This may be indicative of an older population, and these areas often contain more women than men as a result.
Figures for relationship status do not include those aged under 16, or those family members aged 16-18 who are in full-time education.
Health Embed This Back to Top
Health in the UK is strongly tied to age as you would expect, but the affluence of a neighbourhood also has strong influence, with deprived areas often showing poorer standards of health.
Overall, the UK considers itself to be healthy - 81.1% of residents rated their health as Very Good or Good. The full breakdown is as follows for the United Kingdom: 47.1% Very Good, 34% Good, 13.3% Fair, 4.3% Bad and 1.3% Very Bad.
However, this area of the The Risboroughs 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.
