About the Demographic Information

The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Headlands Drive, Prestwich, Manchester, M25 9YF 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 St Mary's ward however contains significantly more women than average (65%). 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.
