Affluence Rating of LA9 5QE

Credit scoring measures the probability of a person being able to keep payments up to date on a credit facility.  In contrast, the Affluence Rating is a measure of how much money someone has, which is an entirely different thing. It is possible to have a great credit score but a poor Affluence Rating, and vice versa, although the two are far more likely to run hand in hand with each other.

Residents in LA9 5QE have a lower than average affluence rating which is common amongst people in the heavy spending years of building a family, or in later life when assets are sold to provide better income.
Newspaper Readership
Newspaper readership is linked with overall income and wealth. This is controversial because newspapers are not the only source of news and some papers attract a wide range of readers, but the correlation is nevertheless a strong one.
Number of Investors
The term 'investors' in this category relates to ownership of stock exchange quoted shares. The number of investors in an area reflects a higher than average level of disposable income and a better than average ability to save money.
Financial Risk
'Financial risk' is taken principally from the number of court judgments or decrees in any postcode. This is used as a negative measure of affluence as not all assets may be available to the apparent owner.
Car Ownership
One of the least reliable indicators of affluence, because cars may be leased rather than owned. If leased - for example a 'company car', car ownership can still give a measure of underlying income.
Property Ownership
Property ownership is one of the most popular ways of storing wealth and is usually the largest asset available to any individual. This measure is a strong indicator of affluence.
