Demographic Details Overview

Demographic Details Overview

The demographic data related to housing, population, cultural practices, employment, and education for Westminster, London, SW1A 1AA originates from the 2021 UK census. These censuses are conducted every decade. Our platform presents 2021 statistics for England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. However, for Scotland, we display data from 2011 due to a delay in their census (an update is on the horizon).

It's essential to understand that the census data might encompass numbers from nearby streets and postcodes, making the figures indicative of the broader vicinity rather than a particular street or set of houses. To ensure residents' privacy, each postcode group is designed to have a minimum of 100 residents (50 in Scotland's case), especially since certain postcodes might correspond to very confined spaces, even individual buildings at times.
