Overview

The "City of London" is the historic centre of London and is often commonly called "the square mile". 

Due to City of London’s small resident population, the lack of data means we are not able to include it in most indicators on this site. As a result, it has not been ranked alongside other London local authorities, as the comparisons would be misleading. There is data on the City of London in relation to its poverty rate, child poverty rate and out-of-work benefits
