Joint Strategic Needs Assessment - Profiles

Neighbourhood profiles allow you to access a wide range of information about health and wellbeing issues in your local area and have been produced as part of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is a strategic assessment of current and future needs of local communities. The JSNA is an on-going process to analyse, understand and interpret data; and the information produced is continually being updated, improved on and expanded. This information includes integrated profiles for each neighbourhood which provide headline statistics; Claremont and Weaste, East Salford, Eccles, Irlam and Cadishead, Little Hulton and Walkden, Ordsall and LangworthySwinton and Worsley and Boothstown. The integrated profiles can also be accessed via the buttons on the left hand side of this page.

There are more detailed neighbourhood profiles which look at children's services, economyenvironment, housinghealth and wellbeingknow your area and transport for each of Salford's eight neighbourhoods. These can be seen by clicking on the link to the integrated profile you wish to view and then using the links in the text or buttons to the left hand side of the profile page. Alternatively go to the page for the theme you wish to view and using the links or left hand buttons for that page.

The profiles have been put together using the most recent, reliable and robust data available at the time. However, they are an interpretation of data and don't yet represent the complete picture. There will be gaps in some areas and we will strive to fill those gaps in future versions; we would welcome feedback on how the profiles can be improved, email with your suggestions.

The profiles and Salford Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy will help organisations across Salford to know which services are needed and where across the city and to make decisions about how to commission services which respond to the needs of the people who live here.

There is a Jargon Buster which explains terms used in the profiles and can be reached via a button on the right side of each page.

If you have any comments on the neighbourhood or you wish to suggest any changes to the profiles email us at

Further information

Information which benchmarks Salford against England can also be found on a number of health profiles produced by Public Health England. Links to the city-wide Salford Health profile, Child Health profile and National General Practice Profiles are provided below. There are also other topic specific profiles.

These profiles are useful to consider in conjunction with the Integrated Neighbourhood Profiles to provide further city level information with comparison to England. They are updated annually and represent a particular point in time. The local Integrated Profiles aim to provide information over time (trend data), where possible.

Census 2011

On 16 July 2012, the Office for National Statistics published the first release of 2011 Census data for local authority districts. The data comprised just population estimates by five year age group and sex, and counts of occupied households and short term migrants (persons from overseas who intended to stay in the UK between 3 and 12 months) at local authority district level.

The 2011 Census population total for the City of Salford is 233,900 persons. This figure is very close to the expected population total of 233,300 (the ONS 2010 based sub-national population projection for the year 2011, published March 2012). However, the 2011 Census population age profile for Salford differs markedly from the expected age profile - the Census counted significantly fewer people aged 20-29 and over 75, and counted more in all other age groups.

From November 2012, ONS started the phased release of more detailed 2011 Census statistics for areas smaller than local authority districts. This will mean that further information will be available in 2013. Until such time, the current profiles will continue to present the most current information about Salford's neighbourhood populations. To get the latest data about Salford from the Census 2011 go the ONS site or click on the Census 2011 button to the right of this page.

*There may be occasional slight differences between the local and national profiles due to use of different time periods, data sources and methods of expressing data. Please e-mail for any advice regarding this.
