High fuel costs - low income-New fuel poverty data available
In May 2014, the Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) released new estimates of the number and proportion of households across the country living with high fuel costs and low incomes.
The old indicator of fuel poverty, which looked at the proportion of households spending 10% or more of their income in fuel, was dropped in 2012 and the new indicator replaces it.
Over the last decade there has been increasing need for all publicly owned organisations to give access to information which is held due to the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act 2000.
The population of Cambridgeshire is forecast to grow by approximately 25% between 2013 and 2036 (Cambridgeshire Research Group’s 2013-Based Population Forecasts). The rise in population will be driven in part by significant housing developments within the County.
Cambridgeshire experienced a 2.3% increase in employment during 2014 (Source: ONS).
Each year, housing partners work together to update our understanding of the housing market locally. Part of this assessment includes looking at housing affordability.

Solid information on population counts by region and sub-region is vital for the ongoing local planning of services, such as schools, children’s centres and transport provisions and infrastructure.
The Cambridge sub-region housing profiles show information about housing stock, households and data about affordable housing demand at a parish or ward level.
Census Area Profiles - The 2011 Census
The population Census is conducted every ten years across the United Kingdom – the last Census was in 2011. The survey results help to paint a picture of the nation and how we live, by providing a detailed snapshot of the population and its characteristics.
Each year I have to visit every home in Cambridgeshire. Is there anything you can do to help me plan my visits? Where are the most populated areas in the county, from the largest city to the smallest hamlet, which I must remember to visit?
The Government’s Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) sets out the desired outcomes for public health and how they should be measured.
The Census tells us that more than 322,000 households were living in the Cambridge housing sub-region in 2011. Of these approximately:
When Cambridgeshire County Council received the funding to develop our approach to Open Data in the County we were naturally very pleased.
Every year fuel poverty in the UK makes the headlines, for example:
