Research: Demographics

Our demographics work looks at information about the general population of Greater Manchester, and particular groups in society. Detailed knowledge about areas and the groups within those areas helps to plan services such as education, public transport, health, and housing. 

Demographics information is available from a range of sources, such as the Office of National Statistics, and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. GMCA regularly analyses these outputs to understand and visualise information about our conurbation, and to monitor change over time.
