The information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about CO3 is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011. They are performed once every 10 years. The figures are representative of the local area, not a specific street address or row of houses.

Social Grade

Social Grade approximations are derived from an algorithm created by the Market Research Society. The figures shown are per-household rather than individual - more specifically, the job title and employer of the "household reference person" is used, analogous to what traditionally was called the head of the household. Only household reference persons between the ages of 16-64 are included.

Social Grade
AB - Higher and intermediate managerial, administrative, or professional positions 2764
C1 - Supervisory, clerical, and junior managerial/administrative/professional positions 3324
C2 - Skilled manual workers 1861
DE - Semi-skilled and unskilled manual workers; those on state benefit/unemployed, & lowest grade workers 1654

Age Groups 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.
