State of the District Report

The State of the District report provides an up to date and comprehensive description of the Wakefield District. It draws statistics from a wide range of government departments and local organisations to show the extent to which society and life is changing, as well as some of the factors which may be driving these trends.

The population and different aspects of the local economy make up the majority of the report, but there is growing coverage of other aspects of society, such as poverty, the impact of climate change and COVID-19. The report is written in a style that we hope will engage a diverse readership, including local leaders, professionals, local charitable and community organisations, and the wider general public.

Further information can be found on Wakefield Council’s Stats, Facts and Maps pages, and statistical profiles for each ward are also available.
