About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Stockport, SK5 7RH 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. The local area around SK5 7RH however is predominantly male (55%). This can be caused by a number of factors, but amongst the most common are: areas associated with nearby higher education, areas that contain large establishments such as boarding schools, and areas with younger populations (females on average live longer than males, so are more likely to be found in retirement areas).
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
The postcode SK5 7RH does not show a significant deviation from the average figures for the UK. In the UK as a whole, the average figures are approximately as follows for relationship statuses: 34% single, 47% married, 3% separated, 9% divorced, 7% widowed, and 0.2% same sex.
Figures for relationship status do not include those aged under 16, or those family members aged 16-18 who are in full-time education.
