Area Information for Salford, M5 2XU
This postcode was terminated by the Royal Mail in December 2001. Where possible, we have attempted to find data relating to the area in which the postcode used to reside before retirement. However, some data such as street names and house pricing is based on current postcodes only and so may be missing or incomplete.
About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Salford, M5 2XU 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
