  • Interpretation:
    This figure shows how the six class rural and urban classification maps across the Local Authority Districts and Unitary Authorities of England. Urban districts are shown as dark blue, light blue and orange. Rural districts are coloured dark and light green.
  • Interpretation:
    Purple areas are where those aged 60 to 74 are the most populous of the age groups shown in the key. A large area of rural England (especially sparse areas) fall into this category. A pattern can be seen where urban areas tend to have younger groups predominating, and the further one goes from major conurbations the older the predominant age group.
  • Interpretation:
    Yellow areas mainly in rural areas in the north of England and rural areas around London are where a lower percentage of cars are over five years old. Purple and red areas have higher proportions of older cars and are found especially in rural areas in the South West and East Anglia, and also in London.
  • Interpretation:
    Areas with the lowest percentage of households with incomes below 60% of the English median, those coloured yellow, are primarily in the south-east and central regions. Peripheral and rural areas have higher proportions whilst the highest proportions are in urban areas and coastal settlements.
    Notes:
    Data is unequivalised and presented at Lower Super Output Area. Median household income for England is £29,'I22 and an income below 60% of this would be below £1'I,833.
