- The NCL population is relatively young, with more adults under 30 than other areas, particularly in Camden, Haringey and Islington. The area has historically had a lot of migration both from other areas of the UK as well as other countries.
- Around 60% of NCL residents are White, with around 20% Asian and 20% Black. Barnet and Camden have larger Asian communities, whereas Haringey and Enfield have larger Black communities.
- Haringey, Islington and Enfield have on average, higher rates of deprivation compared to London, although pockets of deprivation are dispersed across NCL1.
- While not explaining all differences, the intersectionality between ethnicity and deprivation is very important. Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities that are living in the most deprived areas include Black, White Irish, Turkish, and Eastern European communities in Enfield, Haringey and Islington, the Bangladeshi community in Camden, and Gypsy, Roma and Irish Traveller communities in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.
