Classification

Struggling suburbs (Smaller area)
Populated by above average numbers of Black residents, these neighbourhoods also have high unemployment by London standards. Above average levels of housing are provided by the social rented sector – often in terraces. Employment is found across a range of blue-collar occupations that are found within the Greater London area.
Intermediate Lifestyles (Wider area)
Although exhibiting no over-arching discriminating characteristics, households in this Super-Group are predominantly in later stages in life-cycle, and are predominantly White and born in the UK. Rather few households have dependent children and most live in single family terraced or semi detached properties. Households that rent their properties do so in the social rented sector. Employment levels are average for London, and are split between full and part time working in a range of intermediate occupations. Levels of highest qualifications are below the London average.
