Community Profile and
Local statistics (Neighbourhood Statistics)
The Adur & Worthing Community Profile 2014 aims to provide a picture of the District of Adur and the Borough of Worthing.
The report is divided into sections. Each shows data for a different issue such as population, crime, and health etc. Each section is in a different colour for ease of finding. You can also go directly to sections by clicking on them in the contents page.
The report contains statistical data on the following geographical levels:
- Local Authority level - Adur & Worthing
- Electoral Ward level - there are 14 in Adur and 13 in Worthing
And in some places a:
- Super Output Area Level (these are areas of approximately 1,000 population)
At the beginning of each section there are links in arrows to more detailed information. The majority of this data sits on the Adur and Worthing Council web site.

The Community Wellbeing team of Adur & Worthing Councils have produced a Community Profile for the areas of Adur and Worthing. The report brings together in one document statistical data from a broad range of issues ranging from population, inequalities, and crime. It provides a snapshot in time of life in these two areas. The report contains data on as local a level as is available and where possible it also contains data on a regional and national level so that comparisons can be made.
The report is divided into six main sections:
- Demographics and population
- Deprivation and inequalities
- Benefits and unemployment
- Crime and anti-social behaviour
For the reader with less time there is also an executive summary at the beginning of the document which lists key points from each of the sections above.
The report provides hard fast statistical data in an easy to understand format. It does not contain anecdotal information or try to provide solutions to the issues raised. If you require further information contact Lynne Ward, Neighbourhood Manager of the Community Wellbeing team.
By its nature the report will require to be updated on a regular basis as more recent data becomes available. This will be particularly true for when results from the 2011 national census are released.
