CENSUS & STATISTICS

To complement the Community Needs Assessments we will try to feature relevant and interesting statistics about the community from a wide variety of sources.

Information gathered during the census in 2011 is now available. The first bit of information we have found is a breakdown of the population of the country by ward and output areas (sorry for the jargon!).

There is a spreadsheet available to download below that has the relevant Sale Moor information pulled from the main statistics. Its the ages of people in the ward and in each output area that Sale Moor covers. Some parts of Sale Moor have slipped into Brooklands over the years and boundary changes so they are included too.

Some charts are included and maps of the Lower Super Output Areas (so that piece of jargon will hopefully make sense if you look at the maps). A Male and Female breakdown is also included.

Will be putting more up as we go along.

Open Office, Excel or similar spreadsheet program required. Relatively small download (1.6mb) should take a twenty seconds at most. Use the link below to look at the data.

Sale Moor Super Output Area Maps

The map below represents the Lower Super Output Areas (LSOA) represented in Sale Moor. Not all the areas are wholly in the Sale Moor ward itself but traditionally people have identified these as Sale Moor. Boundary changes over the years mean that parts of Sale Moor have gone into the Brooklands ward. The image was made from a combination of images from Google Earth and Open Street Map. While we have tried to make this as accurate a representation as possible there may be small errors in the boundaries of the LSOA’s.

The 2015 Indices Of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) have been released. In the first instance we have created a graph showing the movement of the LSOA’s in Sale Moor over the last five years. In England the LSOA’s are ranked from 1 to 32,844 with rank 1 being the most deprived area. Over the last five years the general trend has been for Sale Moor to become a less deprived area. We will be doing some more analysis of the data over the coming months to establish what has changed and what is driving the improvement according to the IMD.

The map should help to understand the locations identified on the graph.

The graph below shows the difference for each LSOA in the domains used to measure deprivation over the 5 year period between 2010-2015. The seven domains are Income, Employment Education, Skills and Training, Health Deprivation and Disability, Crime, Barriers to Housing and Services and the  Living Environment. The biggest movement across the community seems to come in the Crime & Barriers to Housing and Services domains.
