Worcestershire Census Atlas

Using Census 2011 data in a practical and applied way, this document provides an insight into the influence of housing and the environment on health outcomes for the people of Worcestershire. This report contains a series of maps which provide an easily interpreted representation of the Census 2011 data by ward in Worcestershire.

The map depicts the distribution of people in Worcestershire who report providing unpaid care – this demonstrates that there is a higher density of people caring for family and friends in rural areas than in urban areas such as Worcester and Redditch (inset maps). Caring for someone else can have an impact on health and wellbeing.
