Find information about Newport, its people, communities and their needs in a standard, easy-to-use format.
The profiles provide an overview of the population using data including population, diversity, households, health, education, housing, benefits and levels of deprivation.
The information is given in a series of charts and graphs with supporting map analysis, key points and context.
Newport and Wales averages are included in the charts and graphs for comparison where appropriate.
The Census of Population and Households section is taken from 2011 Census data and mid-year population estimates.
The Newport profiles aim to:
- inform the development and review of strategies, policies and plans across Newport
- increase understanding of local needs and helps improve the quality of services provided to Newport’s residents
- improve the sharing of research, data and intelligence among partners and minimises duplication
- contribute to better quality of life for the people of Newport
The profiles have been produced with partner organisations.
Community well-being profiles
These incorporate previous ward profile work and meet the needs of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
Twenty community well-being profiles were developed along with a community well-being profile for Newport as a whole.
The community well-being profiles were initially signed off by the Public Services Board on 25 April 2017 after consultation with Board members, other partners, local authority scrutiny committee, voluntary sector organisations and the public.
We are reviewing these profiles to make improvements and update them with the latest available data.
We will do this in phases with sections published separately rather than as a whole profile.
The sections will be Preface, Population, Cultural well-being, Social well-being, Economic well-being and Environmental well-being.
