In Bloxwich, the number of acres of green space for every 1000 people currently is 11 which can be measured against the UK average of 1.7.

Bloxwich in the county of Staffordshire is notable for its specific demographics and has individual characteristics.

For localised cities and the bigger areas of the UK there are wide variations in the demographics that shape an area so the same is also true for the wider region Bloxwich is located in; West Midlands.

Below, these demographics are talked about in headings that explain how the city has grown, what the education levels are like in Bloxwich, what the social grade score of the city is like and if the green space matches the recommended levels people living in the UK should have.

What is a social grade score and how does this relate to Bloxwich?

The social grade of a city is useful when searching for a house for sale because it tells you what kind of jobs people have in the area. For example, there could be a lot of skilled manual workers or there could be a lot of pensioners and people on benefits.

The scale goes from a social grade of an A who are high managerial, administrative or professional workers to an E where people in this category are on state pensions, casual workers or unemployed on state benefits. The number of people in Bloxwich in grades A or B which are the highest skilled roles in the country is 0.1.

Realistically, you can expect workers in this category to earn a higher salary too. For comparison, £32,800.00 is the average household income of the area. You can see how this figure is congruent with the number of people in the top two categories of the social grade at 0.1.

How much do people in Bloxwich earn?

While not always the case, the amount people earn can be associated with better schools in the area and perhaps a nicer environment to live in.

£32,800.00 is the average household income of the area. And the higher this figure is the more likely it is that there is a higher percentage of people with a social grade score in the A or B categories which is 0.1 for Bloxwich.

For the city of Bloxwich, what is the education level?

The number of people as a percentage who have been through university and gained a degree is 12%. The ability to buy a home is greatly influenced by the number of people who have degrees. £32,800.00 is the amount people in Bloxwich are earning.

As you can tell, this figure along with the number of people who have degrees roughly correlate. For reference, the percentage of people who have degrees in the UK is 22.6% and the average household income is.

As a general rule, the bigger the difference between this 22.6% figure and the percentage of people with a degree in Bloxwich, the bigger the difference in the ability to earn and hence buy a house. A higher number of degrees will increase the potential for people to earn and hence the buying power of the population. This will also push up the price of houses in the area.

Nonetheless, making accurate estimates for the appreciation of homes must be done with other pieces of data in mind such as the rental yields or perhaps the crime rate of the area to name some examples.

What’s crime like in Bloxwich?

The crime rate of Bloxwich must be looked at sceptically. The reason for this is that the crime rate can vary within a city greatly and the type of crime committed can also vary too.

For example, the area has a crime rate of 141, but another city may have a higher crime rate but not be deemed as dangerous due to lower level crime or minor offences being committed.

Either way, high crime rates are never a good sign so consider the rate against the UK average of 79.52 for every 1000 people as a benchmark.

Lower rates could mean things like home insurance is cheaper and you have to install fewer security measures throughout your house. Saving you money in the long run. So the statistic of crime rate (141) is both useful and is recommended to be compared to the average.

Have the people of Bloxwich grown in numbers?

The city of Bloxwich has a total population of 50107. Large population sizes can be good to show there is a high demand for people to buy houses in the area but a better indication is if the population of Bloxwich is growing.

A small population city can also have high prices of houses for sale, because, if there is a growing population, and demand is still high, this could mean the house prices are pushed up.

Either way, a population must also be looked at in terms of the appreciation of the area as well as the rental yields and if the area really meets your needs.
