We have used statistics taken from the most recent census to assign over 10,000 postcode sectors of the UK with a description detailing the highest numbering type of resident.

All you need to do to find out who lives in or who lives at a particular location is enter a location in the box above, set your radius and start the search. We will display a map of postcode sectors within the radius each overlaid with a description of the largest percentage type of resident who lives there.

There are many reasons you may want to use a feature such as this - maybe a research project based on demographics, or you are looking for compatible areas to live, friendliest places to live or the best communities to live in.

Each description can be clicked to display the exact area and you can click the area to bring up a full detailed breakdown the area, which shows are of the types of people who live there, crime rates broken down by type of crime, house prices, recent sold prices and the most expensive or least expensive areas.

We display census subgroups in the popup but each census is actually broken down in to eight supergroups, followed by twenty-six middle groups and then seventy-six subgroups. Subgroups and groups can have a mixed allocation as can supergroups.

Descriptions of each of the groups are below and taken directly from the Office for National Statistics.
