Ward profiles

Profiles of each of Swansea's 36 electoral wards are available from this page.

The Ward Profiles bring together a range of key statistical and other information about each electoral ward in Swansea. They draw upon a wide array of data sources, and their standardised layout enables the quick and easy comparison of areas, and the identification of patterns and variations. An equivalent profile of the City and County of Swansea - replicating the format used in the ward profiles where possible - is also provided.

The latest versions of the profiles (February 2021) incorporate a number of statistical information sources, including:

  • Ward-level annual population estimates (mid-2019), together with a broad age/sex breakdown, population density and population change (Office for National Statistics / ONS)
  • Birth and death rates (ONS, 2019)
  • Workplace employment estimates (ONS, 2019) and major employers in the ward
  • Average house sale prices by property type (ONS, 2019-20)
  • Dwelling stock by Council Tax Band (Valuation Office Agency, March 2020)
  • Average household income estimates at MSOA - Middle Super Output Area - level (ONS, 2015-16)
  • Recent work and income-related benefits statistics (DWP/ONS, August 2020).

These profiles also incorporate ward-level statistics from the 2011 Census (ONS), including summary data on population characteristics, household composition, housing type and tenure, NS-SeC (socio-economic position based on occupation) and economic activity.

The profiles also include the most recent (2019) local rankings from the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (Welsh Government), contextual information about the development of each ward, housing, location maps and other information, including the current elected Councillors in each ward.

Additional statistical information for the 36 wards, and the City and County of Swansea as a whole, is available elsewhere within the 'Statistics' pages, including more detailed 2011 Census data and profiles, ward level labour market statistics (on page 2 of the bulletin) and further information from the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation.

Similar profiles of the three local (Parliamentary / Assembly) Constituency Areas, six Community Areas (used in Swansea's Assessment of Local Well-being 2017) and the five Delivery Areas in Swansea (formerly Communities First clusters) are also available.

We are regularly looking at ways to develop and improve the Ward Profiles, so would welcome any feedback or suggestions
