News Analysis

New data from the most recent Census reveals the areas which have the highest amount of deprivation in two dimensions in Newtown.

The Census 2021 has revealed a lot of data about our town, but more stark is the results that 21% of households in Newtown South are the most deprived in two dimensions within Powys. This is compared to 17.7% of households in Welshpool or 17.4% of households in Llandrindod Wells.

We've crunched the numbers and shown that this deprivation is more detailed within some neighbourhoods in the Newtown South area, with deprivation also contained within neighbourhoods of Vaynor, Treowen, Trehafren, central areas of the Town Centre and south of Penygloddfa, north of the river.

The neighbourhoods with the least deprivation occur in parts of Barnfields and Milford Road.

The Office for National Statistics define the dimensions as being education, employment, health and housing. The data does not define which specific dimensions apply.

Below is a map, split into Output Areas for Newtown showing the household deprivation in two dimensions.
