6 June 2017 - update

We have discovered a number of errors in the latest version of these profiles. We are currently investigating the cause of these but due to the complexity of the source data file this may take some to complete. Until then we have reverted the files back to the last updated date of 8 June 2016.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you require any more up to date council statistics please consult the latest publication which can be found via the Publications A-Z section of this website.

Please contact our Statistics Customer Services if you need any further information.
