Mosaic analysis


Of the 15 mosaic summary groups, 'transient renters', 'senior security' and 'aspiring homemakers' are the most over-represented in the Lancashire-14 area. The areas with transient renters are mainly small, but densely populated, postcodes within central Blackpool, Morecambe and Preston.

'Senior security' category is dominant along much of the Fylde Coast, whilst 'aspiring homemakers' prevail in the commuter belt in Preston, Chorley and South Ribble. Although group A, 'country living' accounts for less than 5% of households, they are spread widely in rural area, predominating in Ribble Valley.

The 'city prosperity' category which comprises high-earners in urban locations is significantly under-represented in Lancashire. The local student population that is classified within the 'rental hubs' category, does not form dominant localities to the same extent as the national average, though can be found as the dominant type in small areas, such as around the University of Central Lancashire.
