I'd say the income one should be high rather than very high, but other than that it seems about right.

It's a nice place (Staincross) on the outskirts of a bad area (Barnsley). Hey, if it's good enough for Dickie Bird, it's good enough for me :eek:

Unfortunately this seems to be the type of people moving into my once quiet pleasant village where your average car was a Ford rather than a Bentley

That shocked me :p: I didn't realise it was so posh. Unless it's referring to the town as a whole, in which case, I can sort of understand it.

Often, many of the people who live in this sort of postcode will live in multi-ethnic purpose built estates. These are known as type 55 in the ACORN classification and 1.1% of the UK’s population live in this type.

Neighbourhoods fitting this profile are mostly found in Inner London, in areas such as Southwark, Hackney, Lambeth and Tower Hamlets. There are also similar areas in central Glasgow.

These are some of the most densely populated urban areas in the country, and are characterised by a young, multi-ethnic population living in purpose built blocks of flats, some of which are high-rise. Over 20% of the population are Afro-Caribbean.

They rent their small, one and two bedroom flats from the council and housing associations, and there is a high degree of overcrowding. Almost 60% of households are single people, including some single pensioners. There are average levels of children, but more than half of them live in single parent households.

Unemployment levels are high and a significant proportion have been looking for work for some time. Employment tends to be in low skilled occupations and incomes are low. Students form 10% of the population in these areas. Like most young people they are interested in music, fashion and arts such as community theatre.

Like all urban types, newspapers are popular. Readership is diverse and includes the Daily Mirror, Daily Sport, The Guardian and Independent.
