Bangladeshi enclaves (Smaller area)

These neighbourhoods have exceptionally high concentrations of residents of Bangladeshi origin; and also are areas characterised by particularly low levels of use of English as a first language. Families generally have a younger age structure, and a prevalent source of employment is in the accommodation and food services industry. The areas also have higher student populations than are typical for London, and residents who use bicycles to get to and from work or study

High Density and High Rise Flats (Wider area)

Concentrations of this Super Group are found in densely populated areas of flats. Many families have children of school age and many residents are of Bangladeshi origins, along with high numbers of households describing themselves as Black or as coming from Mixed or Other ethnic groups. There is a high incidence of households in which the main spoken language is not English. Levels of highest qualifications are below the London average, although some residents are full-time students living in shared accommodation. Levels of unemployment and part-time working are above the London average, while many of those in employment work in administration, or in accommodation and food services industries.
