Description

Dalton and Thrybergh ward lies in the central part of the Borough, with a population of 8,843 (2019 population estimate). The ward is represented by two members of the Council. Most of the population live in Dalton, East Herringthorpe and Thybergh. These urban areas have a high proportion of council housing and high levels of deprivation, especially East Herringthorpe. The rest of the ward covers very different areas including the small village of Dalton Magna in the east, surrounded by hilly countryside, and in the north of the ward, part of Thrybergh Country Park.

The ward is served by two parish councils, the whole of Thrybergh parish (population 4,073) and the North ward of Dalton parish (total parish population 10,139). East Herringthorpe is not served by a parish council.

Ethnicity

Official population ethnicity data is collected and analysed every ten years as part of the National Census. Unfortunately, this breakdown is not included within the annual mid-year estimate statistics published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Local populations can change significantly during the lifetime of this dataset. Therefore, as a local proxy we utilise the annual School and Pupil Census data to create an estimation of the current ethnicity breakdown.

The table below provides the ward analysis of both the 2011 census and latest School and Pupil census by the ethnic groupings used by the ONS.

The IMD is only produced for Lower-level Super Output Areas (SOAs) of which there are 167 in Rotherham (around 8 per ward) and 32,844 in England, each with around 1,500 people. SOAs are ranked across England where 1 is the most deprived. Any rank below 3,285 indicates that an area is within the 10% most deprived areas of England.
