Maps of King’s Park Ward


Introduction This profile explores the demographic, social and economic characteristics of King’s Park Ward and is largely based on data drawn from the 2011 Census. The ward profiles should be a helpful resource for local people and services that want a basic overview of the key characteristics and make up of local wards. In 2014 new ward boundaries were introduced in Hackney. This means that it is not possible to directly source data from the 2011 Census for this ward. The Census data contained in this profile for the ward is built up from smaller geographies, and uses a ‘best fit’ methodology1. This profile is a snapshot, and is intended to support an understanding of Hackney’s ward characteristics and support local decision making. All data used in this profile has been drawn from the 2011 Census unless otherwise stated. More ward-level statistics can be found at the GLA Datastore Ward Profiles pages. Further research, statistics and intelligence about Hackney can also be found on the Shared Evidence Base pages of the Council’s website. These pages contain detailed needs assessments on health, housing, the local economy and child poverty and family wellbeing. Key data is summarized in the quarterly Facts and Figures leaflet.


It should also be noted that there may be some anomalies in the new data due to rounding. Additionally, if ONS do at some point update Census data according to new Ward boundaries, the data that would be released would differ slightly from that in this profile. This is because ONS would re-analyse the Census data to aggregate exactly to new Ward boundaries, rather than use ‘best fit’ methods.


Key characteristics King’s Park Ward lies in the east of Hackney. At the time of the 2011 census it was home to 12,696 people. King’s Park Ward includes Hackney Marshes, the largest area of parkland in the borough. The profile shows that King’s Park’s population has a greater proportion of children, middle aged and older adults, aged 45-84 and fewer young adults aged 20-44 than Hackney. It has fewer white British and other white people and more black residents than the borough as a whole. The ward has more married couple and lone parent households, but comparatively fewer single person, multi-person and cohabiting couple households without children. In 2011, over half of households in King’s Park lived in social housing, and only 17% rented from a private landlord, compared to 29% of Hackney households. King’s Park’s economic and social profiles show that just over 30% of adults living in King’s Park have degree-level qualifications or higher, compared with a borough average of 41%. Unemployment is nearly 2% above the borough average. Just over half of the working-age population in King’s Park Ward is in work. Residents of King’s Park Ward experience levels of health that are worse than the borough average.

London’s qualifications profile tends to differ from the national picture. It has a better-educated population, with 37.7% of people having at least a first degree (level 4/5). It also has below average rates of residents with level 1 or 2 qualifications (to GCSE level), and lower rates of residents with no qualifications, too. These trends are even more pronounced in Hackney. Over 40% of residents have degree-level qualifications. The proportion with no qualifications in Hackney is higher than the London average, but lower than the England average. Hackney has relatively few adults with mid-level qualifications. In King’s Park there are a greater proportion of residents with no qualifications, apprenticeships and Level 1-3 qualifications, but significantly fewer residents with degree-level qualifications and above, than the Hackney or London average.

Deprivation The Index of Multiple Deprivation gauges the level of deprivation in a locality across several ‘domains’, including employment, income, health, education and crime. England is divided into over 32,000 Lower Super Output Areas (LSOA’s). These are areas containing around 1,500 people and 650 households. Since the 2014 ward boundary changes Lower Super Output Areas no longer match ward boundaries exactly. The map opposite illustrates the parts of the ward which experience the greatest deprivation. The areas shaded in red and dark orange lie in the 20% most deprived Lower Super Output Areas in England and the light orange and yellow areas are in the 30% most deprived LSOA’s and above. The areas to the east and north of King’s Park Ward tend to experience greater deprivation. According to a calculation prepared by the Local Government Association, King’s Park ranks 4th out of 21 wards in Hackney in terms of deprivation. It is within the 5% most deprived wards in London, ranking 425 out of 654 wards, and is within the 10% most deprived English wards.2
