Caerphilly County Borough Council is the fifth largest local authority in Wales with 73 elected members covering 33 wards and employing approximately 9,400 staff, making it the largest employer in the area. It delivers a wide range of services to the 169,519 people who live in the county borough (according to the 2001 Census figures).
Those Census figures also give an indication of the diverse nature of the population receiving those services and the booklet shown below is designed to give an overview of that diversity on a ward-by-ward basis.
There are profiles of each of the 33 electoral wards, based on equalities issues, gathered from the information that was available from the 2001 Census. A hard copy of the booklet is also available on request.
Each ward profile, listed alphabetically, has a map showing where in the county borough the ward is located and has local population information (both numbers and percentages) on female/male population, the 0-25 age group, the 50+ age group (with 65+ also shown), the number of Welsh speakers, the number of permanently sick or disabled, and the ethnic minority population.
The booklet will be updated as soon the Census 2011 population information is available.
