City and student fringe (Smaller area)

Many members of this Group live in communal establishments, located in some of London’s less fashionable central locations. Employment is typically in accommodation and food services. Black British residents are much in evidence, and 18 citizens of post 2001 EU countries are also well represented relative to the London average.

City Vibe (Wider area)

There are many young, single professionals in this Super Group, living in Zone 2 of the London travel network. Compared to the London average, few individuals originate from the Indian sub-continent, but Mixed ethnic groups are well represented, as are migrants from pre 2001 EU countries. A large number of households comprise full time students in shared or communal establishments. Individuals rent within the private sector, are well qualified and are employed in a range of professional, scientific and technical occupations.
