Introduction

As a community development consultant, I have been commissioned on behalf of a coalition of community groups, to highlight a social need in the Newcastle under Lyme 006E neighbourhood by building a demographical profile from using reliable statistical evidence which gives this information. From the demographical profile the characteristics of the neighbourhood can be indicated and a proposed community project will be put into place to tackle the social need of the neighbourhood. People, health, education and employment statistics have been researched and implemented into the report to build a profile of the problems within the neighbourhood Methodology

To find the appropriate statistics and information, in depth research has be done on the neighbourhood statistics website at www.neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk, from this website statistics on health, education and people can be analysed to give information needed. People based statistics are important to give an indication of the size and population of the neighbourhood; health based statistics indicate the health of the neighbourhood; work statistics indicates the employment in the area and education statistics gives an indication of the educational achievement in the neighbourhood.
