About the Demographic Information

The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Princess Margaret Way, Port Talbot, Wales, SA12 6QP is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011.

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.
