Chorlton, Didsbury and Hale are working from home: New Census insights into how we live
Our data reporter digs through fascinating numbers about renting, home working and which neighbourhoods the New Mancunians are moving to
Dear members — drumroll please… Today we publish a new writer, and a data reporter no less. James Gilmour is an urban analyst by trade and he will be making graphs and pouring over vast datasets for us this year. In his debut piece today, he writes about three themes that have emerged from the early releases of data from the 2021 Census, including a fascinating insight into which neighbourhoods in Greater Manchester have the most “internal migrants” and which ones have lots of people working from home.
James grew up in Leicester but he’s been in Manchester for three and a half years, currently living in the Northern Quarter with assorted plants and a stack of German language books (he came into our orbit via a chance meeting with Joshi at a German class). His favourite spots in town are Dale Street coffee shop Idle Hands and the Central Library Reading Room, where he will be spending many hours digging for obscure facts and figures for you in the coming months.
