In Cannock, 42626 people live in the city as their main place of residence.

It is important to note that it is not the case that everyone likes a large population to live in. People who tend to prefer a more relaxed life are more likely to buy or rent somewhere to live that has a small population and perhaps also wouldn’t mind if the population isn’t growing.

Other people also like to have a mix of both. Where they can visit rural areas and also benefit from the amenities of a busy city.

Someone who wishes to find out how this change has occurred over a longer period of time may also wish to read the headings below and see if the change has continued throughout the past decade too. Or if the change is only true for the more recent figure for five years of 3%. Click here to know more on the UK population trends.

Over the last decade, how has the population differed in Cannock?

Populations change all the time but if there is a clear change in population in the last ten years this is even more reliable data about the population of the area as opposed to five. This adjustment in population works out to be 5% in Cannock.

What this statistic is like in comparison to the population change in five years should provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what direction the population is heading in.

In recent years because of the pandemic, it is common to see dramatic differences in the population change in the last five years when comparing it to ten as people realise they can work from home but still keep the current jobs they have.

This means they can move to cities they wouldn’t have considered otherwise and be location-independent of their source of income. Perhaps making a longer commute into the office every week for example.

In the city of Cannock, is there a lot of green space?

Providing the right amount of green space for people in the UK is a difficult subject because there are clear benefits for human health but at the same time, it is hard to make sure all areas of the UK can get enough greenery. This is a result of land being already in use in cities where most people live.

In Cannock, 25 is the amount of acres of outdoor space there is for every 1000 people. Charities such as ‘Fields in Trust’ recommend there to be at least 6 acres. This should allow you to conclude whether this green space is sufficient for you if you are interested in buying in Cannock.

Are the people of Cannock deprived?

The deprivation levels of the UK can vary quite a bit. High deprivation levels signal a particular area has people who are struggling to make ends meet and pay for basic living expenses. For Cannock, in particular, the deprivation levels are £0.

This figure can be contrasted with the deprivation levels of the UK of 33% to see if the levels are below or above average.

Is the education level of Cannock important when buying a house?

Interestingly, the percentage of people who have a degree in the city of Cannock is 16%. Most of the time, the more people that have a degree, the higher the average household income and the more likely someone is to be able to afford to purchase a house. For example, the average income of the citizens in the area of Cannock is £36,700.00.

Generally, areas with high numbers of people with a degree are also areas with more people likely to be home owners and therefore the value of houses and relative prices of the houses for sale are more likely to go up too.

Nonetheless, making predictions about the appreciation of a house also has to be considered alongside other factors like population growth and the rental yields of the area.

However, most of the time, being educated is a good indication of affluence with 82% of people graded a first in tertiary education going on to eventually own a house.

What’s the crime rate in Cannock?

In Cannock, for every 1000 people, there is currently a crime rate of 9200%. This can be compared to the national average of 79.52 for every 1000 people.

Low crime rates are desirable for your safety as a homeowner. Even if you don’t tend to leave the house too often and tend to not mind living in a slightly more dangerous area. Things like burglaries are always a possibility which could harm your ability to pay for home insurance and also may force you to install additional security in your home that can cost you further.

Having said this, you can look at the crime rate on a deeper level to find out what the threats are exactly. It could be the case that a proportion of these crimes (9200% for every 1000 people) come from things like anti-social behaviour rather than more serious crimes like violence and sexual offences.

If this is the case you may be more willing to look over a high crime rate within the areas you’re looking to buy a home.

A Professional, managerial or administrative 4
