Maybe where you live could be best defined as deprived blue-collar terraces or an urban cultural mix, or perhaps it is full of rural workers and families or maybe multi-ethnic professionals with families.

Among the things taken into consideration are age, ethnicity, the type of home people live in, education and employment - all to find the areas where you are more likely to find young families living in terraces, or tech workers, or retired people in semi-detached homes.

The most common types of neighbourhoods nationally are White Suburban Communities, which make up 4.2% of the UK, followed by Self-Sufficient Retirement at 3.7%.

Semi-Detached Aging and White Professionals both make up 3.5% of the UK’s neighbourhoods.
