The registered population is evenly split between females (50.2%) and males (49.8%) and whilst almost a fifth (19%) of the population is aged 65 or over, 27% are aged 24 or under and 53% are aged between 25 and 64. Deprivation measures show that Chorley and South Ribble are two of the more affluent districts within the Lancashire-12 area and both fall within the 45% least deprived districts in England (based on the IMD 2015 average score). Despite this, 28% (50,460) of the registered population live within lower layer super output areas (LSOAs) that fall amongst the 40% most deprived areas in England (IMD 2015 quintiles 1 & 2).
