JSNA - Demographics and population

Information on the demography of an area such as the age structure, gender and ethnicity profile of its population is essential in better understanding an area, its needs and assets, and is vital in the delivery of services like education, transport, and healthcare.

Understanding trends and nuances around sparsely and densely populated areas helps us to better understand the current situation and can help to inform future requirements.

This section brings together information on population, household composition and trends which can be used to inform the delivery of services across the Isle of Wight both by the Council and other local organisations.
