Getting a picture of the community
Local Trust recently shared a report with us which provides an overall picture of the community in Allenton Big Local, based on the 2011 Census.
The report shows that there are 5538 people living in the Allenton Big Local area, of which 48% are male and 52% are female.
The report also includes data on age, ethnicity, religion, housing, marital status, work, qualifications, health and languages which provides a more detailed insight into the people in our community. For instance, the report shows that 24% (1,355) of the local population is under the age of 15, and that one third of the residents aged over 16 have no qualifications.
This report will be considered as part of our ‘Reviewing the Landscape’ session, which will take place during our monthly meeting in October. The data will also be used to check that our activities and priorities are targeted appropriately to help improve the lives of residents in Allenton.
