Struggling suburbs (Smaller area)

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.

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.
