Data for the Areas Identified in the Wales Spatial Plan, 2010 Update
The bulletin is informed by the wider Wales Spatial Plan data resource (first published in late 2007), which has been developed to include updates to existing data. The updated resource will be available on the Welsh Assembly Government website from 14 December 2010, providing access to a set of themed data spreadsheets for each of the six areas, along with a spreadsheet for each theme, showing all the areas alongside each other.
The statistical profiles and data resource cover a wide range of data items. A very small selection of points from the individual statistical profiles is given below.
- In 2009, North West Wales had the highest share of its population that was aged 65 and over amongst all Spatial Plan areas in Wales at 21.9% (Wales 18.3%).
- Employment rates in North East Wales were the highest across Wales in 2009, with 71.7% of the population aged 16 to 64 in employment (Wales 66.6%).
- Central Wales had the highest percentage of adults meeting physical exercise guidelines across Wales in 2008-2009, at 36% (Wales 29%).
- Based on completed sales, Pembrokeshire Haven had the highest house prices in 2009 amongst all Spatial Plan areas in Wales, at just over £176,000 (Wales £151,000).
- Swansea Bay had the highest percentage of its population treated by an NHS dentist in the two years to 31 March 2010, at 61% (55% for Wales), but also an above average percentage of adults with less than 21 teeth or mainly false teeth or dentures in 2008-2009, at 29% (27% for Wales).
