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.

Employment is drawn from a range of sectors and this is the only Super Group in which agriculture is an important source of employment.
