Using a bigger sample of the local population gives us more insightful data than relying solely on the 24 people who live in AL5 4HE.

The postcode AL5 4HE is in the LSOA area called 'St Albans 002E', in the Harpenden East ward.

The geographical demographic data for AL5 4HE has been extracted from the Office of National Statistics, responsible for the collection and publication of UK statistics relating to population, society and economy. (ONS)
