Explore the newly released census data for Wake Green Park

This is quite exciting! If you like facts and figures about your neighbour hood, you will love the newly released Census data about Wake Green Park.....and beyond. There is a world outside the park, or so I've heard ;)

Check it out in more detail over on the OCSI blog. 

I've grabbed some basic info from a post code search of our area. Click here or on the map to view it in it's interactive form.

This quick snapshot shows us that Wake Green Park and our immediate surrounding area is more populated than in 2001 with the population rising from 1551 to 1730.

Here are a few more facts and figures:

                                        2001    2011

People aged 0-15 (%) 18       17.7
People aged 16-64 (%) 67.9    71
People aged 65 (%)          14.1    11.3
Median age                       34      34

The following data sets have been included so far:

Usual resident census population estimates by five year age bands and sex
Estimates of household and communal establishments
Estimates of population density and average household size

All very interesting! Here's the link if you would like to check out the stats and facts and figures.

Join the Wake Green Park Residents Facebook Group!

You are invited to join the Wake Green Park Residents Facebook Group! 

In addition to this blog, I've just created a Facebook Group for WGP Residents. Metro PM have been invited to join too.

The reason for starting the Facebook Group  is to encourage discussion in a neighbourly way. Feel free to chat about WGP news, issues, events, offers, or help needed perhaps, or whatever you like! Well, within reason and decency of course ;)

Metro PM, please feel free to use the group to post any WGP news or updates that you wish to share and join in the discussion.

The group isn't to replace this blog, it's in addition to it. I can't always update as often as I would like to here, but I hope that there will be some active WGP chat over on Facebook.

Please help share the news with your neighbours and friends!
