"These are poor families in low-rise estates.

The estates are home to nearly as many single parents as traditional two parent families. There are many school age children and families are larger than average. There are also some couples whose children have left home. Housing is usually in the form of low-rise council terraces, perhaps with three bedrooms, but still crowded for the size of family.

To be earning anything approaching an average income is rare. Long-term unemployment is high, and employment is routine factory or manual work.

Travel is on foot or by public transport since few own a car. (you can gt to almost anywhere in carlisle on foot, there is no NEED for a car!!!)

With money tight, food shopping might be in Aldi or Kwik Save (Yay!). Clothes might be bought at Asda, New Look (i ****ing work in newlook!) or frequently from catalogues.

In common with other low income types, the pub, betting, football pools, lottery and bingo are common activities and entertainments. One luxury might be cable TV. "

i feel that this is *******s haha! bit offensive really

Mum's house: Often, many of the people who live in this sort of postcode will be young working families. These are known as type 40 in the ACORN classification and 1.94% of the UK’s population live in this type. The highest concentration of young working families are found in places such as Telford, Stevenage, Harlow, Basingstoke, and Basildon. Young families living on estates in New Towns make up most of this type of postcode. Most families are two parents with school age children, but there are also significant numbers of single parents.
Family income: Low
Interest in current affairs: Low
Housing - with mortgage: High
Educated - to degree: Very low
Couples with children: High
Have satellite TV: Medium

That's pretty accurate (especially families) and Basildon's about 30 mins from where I live.

Dad's: Often, many of the people who live in this sort of postcode will be cosmopolitan sharers or students living in flats. These are known as type 20 in the ACORN classification and 0.65% of the UK’s population live in this type. University towns such as Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh are the main geographical locations for these types, which are also found in places such as Brighton, Plymouth and Dundee... These people are interested in current affairs. While news may be followed online, they are also readers of The Guardian, Observer, Independent and The Times.
Family income: Medium
Interest in current affairs: High
Housing - with mortgage: Low
Educated - to degree: High
Couples with children: Low
Have satellite TV: Low

I think that's pretty accurate too - it's a student area with a uni campus and college just round the corner, near the town centre, and those are exactly the papers I read! I'd say we have low family income and I have high interest in current affairs, and both areas have many couples with children.
