Calderdale is made up of 17 wards, which vary in both size and demographics – some urban, some rural, and some a mix of the two:
Brighouse / Calder / Elland / Greetland and Stainland / Hipperholme and Lightcliffe / Illingworth and Mixenden / Luddendenfoot / Northowram and Shelf / Ovenden / Park / Rastrick / Ryburn / Skircoat / Sowerby Bridge / Todmorden / Town / Warley
A dataset has been created to provide a profile for each ward using a range of information, such as population, education, employment, health, deprivation and lifestyles. The sources for the profiles include IMD (Indices of multiple deprivation), Office for national statistics, Public health, schools and academies, Census 2011, Calderdale Council and other organisations.
As more data is available at ward level, these datasets will be further enhanced. We welcome your suggestions about other data that we could publish or if you have any local data that could add value to these profiles.
The profiles can be used for a variety of purposes e.g. to support campaigns, applications for funding and grants and to help provide a richer picture of the characteristics and issues in each ward.
