How well do you know Greater Brockley?

The ONS has produced a quiz designed to test how well you know your neighbourhood, based on key metrics about the people who surround you. Taking the test is a chastening experience.

We managed 50% accuracy for Brockley Ward, having let ourselves down by wildly misestimating how many of us are a) Christian and b) have a degree. We won't spoil the surprise if you plan on taking the test yourself, but let us say that one result was encouraging...

Sadly, none of the questions asks "how many people are "real Brockley" as opposed to "new faux Brockley".

Both those surprised me for Ladywell too. Also, the proportion of owners to renters was more markedly different from the national average (64% owner-occupied, 2011, ONS, England and Wales) than I had realised.

Funny thing is, I did one for SE13 and one of the questions was "what percentage of people living in nearby Brockley could be described as tossers", I answered 99% and the answer came back 100%, so I was slightly out.

I got 30% for Brockley.... Unless you've studied local statistics it's pretty tough! I overestimated most results apart from the number of Christians....

being a 'shrink' perhaps you have something you think might be inferior ;)

32% owner occupier in Ladywell , no wonder the outside of 68% of the properties on our street look so uncared for and grim.

If there were long term contracts renters would have more of an incentive to invest in the place they're living in. If one can be unceremoniously chucked out after only two years at the most why would one ever want to invest any money or time in someone else's property?

Well, apparently the question on levels of literacy caught out many people in SE13, simply because they couldn't read it.

I underestimated the percentage of Muslims and homeowners on the West Side.
