About this data

Rather than showing demographic data from just YO26 5QS, we've taken data from the LSOA (Lower Super Output Area) so we can display accurate demographic data.

Using a bigger sample of the local population gives us more insightful data than relying solely on the 91 people who live in YO26 5QS.

The postcode YO26 5QS is in the LSOA area called 'York 012E', in the Acomb ward.

The geographical demographic data for YO26 5QS 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)
