About the Demographic Information
The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Merlin Way, Kidsgrove, Stoke-On-Trent, ST7 4YL 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 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.
