Detached retirement (Smaller area)
These neighbourhoods have much higher levels of elderly and very elderly residents than the London average. Many live in detached houses. Although predominantly White British, there are also significant numbers of Indian residents.
Ageing City Fringe (Wider area)
Many of the residents in this Super Group are over 45, and many are above state pensionable age. There are high levels of marriage and established White residents are very much in evidence. By contrast, representation of ethnic minorities and EU migrants is very low, relative to the London average. Much of the dwelling stock comprises semi-detached and detached houses, occupied at low residential densities. Levels of qualifications are low, as might be expected for these age cohorts. Private vehicle ownership is high, with some households possessing two or more vehicles. Levels of unemployment are very low. Employment is drawn from a range of sectors and this is the only Super Group in which agriculture is an important source of employment.
