Lynton & Lynmouth Mosaic Profile

The Strategic Intelligence team at DCC has produced detailed profiles - with maps and graphs - of the 29 Devon Town areas using ‘Mosaic’ classifications.  These use a range of sources to identify neighbourhoods at the individual postcode level.  

Mosaic Public Sector is designed to identify groupings of consumer behaviour for households and postcodes.  The methodology used is unique to Experian, and has been redefined during many years of creating classifications using data from different sources and different levels of geography. Around 54% is sourced from the 2001 census and 46% includes the edited Electoral Roll, Experian Lifestyle Survey information and Consumer Credit Activity, Post Office Address File, Shareholders Register, House Price and Council Tax Information and ONS local area statistics.

Mosaic classifies postcodes into 11 Mosaic Groups and then subdivides them further into 61 detailed Mosaic Types.   In each type there are a number of key features which make each category distinctive and are useful to bear in mind when devising communications concerning them.  These are subjective and are intended to highlight key issues rather than to be comprehensive.

It is strongly recommended that each profile is read in conjunction with the Appendix – Guide to Mosaic Groups and Types (89KB - pdf help).

Lynton & Lynmouth Population Profile

The Strategic Intelligence section at DCC has produced detailed population projection profiles to the year 2021 - with maps, charts and tables - for the 29 Devon town areas using the 'Chelmer' Model.

The Chelmer Population and Housing Model (CPHM) is the leading British demographic regional housing model developed by the Population and Housing Research Group (PHRG) . It has been purchased by over 50 organisations, including local authorities, the Housebuilders Federation and various consultancy firms.

Each profile shows how much the area is expected to expand and in which age groups - generally in Devon the population is expected to be getting older but these profiles give a detailed local breakdown. Although figures need to be treated with caution at this scale, this is the first time that data lower than District level has been made available
