The most up-and-coming areas in Newcastle-upon-Tyne according to the census, including Denton, Fenham and Walkergate

The 2021 census has revealed the most up-and-coming areas in and around Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

If you’re looking to move house, you might be wondering where the up-and-coming areas of Newcastle-upon-Tyne are and it is a question the England and Wales census can help us to answer.

One of its results is a measure of household deprivation. By comparing the scores from the 2011 census with those from the 2021 census, we can see which neighbourhoods are less deprived than they were before.

There are lots of possible ways to measure household deprivation, and the method used by the Office for National Statistics doesn’t take income into account.

Instead, it looks at four different measures: unemployment, low qualification levels, poor health and bad housing.

Across England and Wales as a whole, more than half of households (52%) were deprived in at least one of these four possible ways when the census took place in 2021 - that’s 12.8 million households.

Here are the areas of Newcastle where the proportion of deprived households fell the most between 2011 and 2021 – the images used are for illustration purposes only.
