About your area

This section helps you find facts and figures about your local area.

Statistics for your local area from the 2011 Census are available to download from the 2011 Census ward profiles page.

Several profiles containing a range of statistics about Herefordshire as a whole can be downloaded from the box below.  This includes a comparison of rural and urban areas[1] of the county (note that the latter uses information from the 2001 Census).

Local area profiles for each ward, Hereford city and the market towns can be accessed through our Find Your Area search on the Herefordshire Council website.  Search by postcode or parish to view statistics for the corresponding lower super output area and ward; see a map of the area, and download an area profile.

The area profiles provide information on a range of topics including population, employment, deprivation, educational attainment and health.  Where possible information is also given for LSOAs within the ward or town, as well as comparative figures for the county.  The profiles include some statistics from the 2001 Census, but also more up-to-date information from other sources. Full census Key Statistics ward profiles are still available from our census section. More up-to-date statistics from the 2011 Census are available to download from the 2011 Census ward profiles page.

As LSOAs are statistical geographies of about 1,500 people, one can cover several parishes in rural areas.  However, far more data is available for LSOAs; parish-level information is generally only from the Census.1  Profiles of Key Statistics from the 2011 Census will be made available to download shortly. Census parish populations are available to download from the population topic page.

It may also be possible to create area profiles for bespoke 'catchment' areas by grouping together LSOAs, please contact us if this is of interest: e-mail researchteam@herefordshire.gov.uk or phone 1432 260498.

Please note that more up-to-date population estimates for wards and LSOAs are also available on the population page.
