Full neighbourhood profile

These traditional blue-collar neighbourhoods contain predominantly married couples, families with older children and some empty nesters.

Formal educational qualifications are below average. People tend to work in routine occupations in manufacturing and retail, in a mixture of skilled, semi-skilled and manual jobs. Family incomes are average, and the main income is often supplemented by female part-time working.

Smaller semi-detached houses, usually with two or three bedrooms, are most common and account for two thirds of the housing stock in this type. Half of householders are buying their property on a mortgage with another third owning outright.

Most households have access to a car but usually a smaller, inexpensive model, possibly bought second hand.

These people are likely to take one main holiday a year, probably a packaged holiday to the Mediterranean or a camping or caravanning holiday in the UK.

Watching TV is a popular leisure activity, as is going to the cinema and sometimes bingo. Doing the football pools, gardening and visiting the pub are also common. Tabloid newspapers are favoured reading, and many listen to Radio 2.

Full neighbourhood profile

These are predominantly well-off professional people living in urban areas of the UK. Most are well educated individuals in professional and managerial occupations, but there are also students and young singles starting out on their careers.

Houses tend to be large, with four or more bedrooms, often in Georgian and Victorian terraces. Many are owner-occupied by professional couples and families. There are also high levels of converted flats, some of which are privately rented. The younger singles in these areas will often be sharing flats and houses.

Car ownership is high, reflecting the wealthy nature of these neighbourhoods, but because of their urban location, travel to work is mostly by public transport.

Incomes tend to be high, with many residents earning over £50,000 a year. They are financially aware and have high levels of savings and investments. They also have high levels of credit card useage. These technologically sophisticated consumers make great use of the Internet for financial services, as well as buying other products and services.

They enjoy the arts, including theatre, classical music, opera and the cinema. The most widely read newspapers are The Guardian, Independent, The Times and Observer. Foreign travel and skiing are popular leisure activities.
