Earlsdon – Who’d live in a place like this? Professionals rule the roost in Earlsdon.

Cotswold Independent Financial Services has now had our office at Stanley House on Warwick Street, Earldson for almost two years and we are very happy being part of the Earlsdon community.

We were keen to find out more about locals in the area. The last census was conducted in 2011 and the census takes place every ten years. Earlsdon Ward ranked highest from all Coventry Wards for having the largest proportion of households that are ‘not deprived’ (55.3%). The City average is 38.4%.

When the data was captured there were just over 10,000 residents aged over 16 in the area, which is just over 4% of Coventry's population. There were slightly more males than females in the area and almost 75% of the adult population were in employment with 10% being self-employed. Both these figures were higher than the average for Coventry. Of those that were not working 5.4% were retired which was higher than the average in Coventry of 3.8%.

30.7% of those working were classed as professional compared with a 16% average in Coventry and a 17.4% average throughout the UK and Wales.

Earlsdon residents also proved to be highly qualified with 47.7% having Level 4 qualifications or above (this is the equivalent to the first year of a degree) and this compares to a national average of 29.7% and a Coventry average of 25.6%. View the full census here.
