The Leicester Household Survey is designed to
capture information on the composition, characteristics, attitudes, and
behaviour of private households and individuals to help shape council services,
make decisions based on evidence about the local population, and to gain a
better understanding of the needs of residents.
To explore the survey by topic and demographic characteristics, please use the Response Analysis tab above.
The specific aims of the survey are to:
- better understand local characteristics alongside census data
- meet local government needs for relevant data to support decision
- allow wellbeing and financial circumstances within households to be
- be understandable and useful to stakeholders and partners
The survey took place in Autumn 2021. 3,272 valid
responses, age 18+ with a Leicester postcode, were collected. Around 60% of
responses were submitted online. The remaining 40% of responses were collected
by fieldworkers who targeted areas or groups with low response rates.
The sample was reasonably representative of
Leicester’s adult population by ethnicity, deprivation, housing tenure, and
broad area of the city.
The themes of the survey were:
- About your household
- Health and wellbeing
- Money and finances
- Digital access and
- News and information
- Leicester City Council
This dataset presents the results of the Leicester Household Survey for the city overall and three demographic categories: Ethnicity, Age, and Housing tenure.
Results for small ethnic groups (Chinese, Mixed, Other) have been suppressed as some information will be based on fewer than five responses.
Some results may not sum to 100 due to rounding.
