Ealing is a borough in Outer West London which has had growing issues of poverty and inequality in recent years. On an average across a suite of London's Poverty Profile data, Ealing is the worst performing borough on the west half of London. 25.7% of Ealing employees are low-paid, which is significantly above the London average of 21%, and private rent for low earners is less affordable than the London average (when compared to low earners’ salary).
However, although many indicators in Ealing are worse than the London average, it is not among the worst boroughs for any given indicator. Ealing has a fairly low premature mortality rate, with 470 deaths per 100,000 people aged 55-64.
The rankings below show how Ealing is performing on key poverty and inequality indicators, in comparison with all 32 London boroughs. The first section gives a snapshot from the latest data: the deeper the red, the worse the problem; those coloured green are in the top half of London boroughs, which are performing better.
The circles show whether the issue is getting better or worse in comparison to previous period. Where there is no change, the circle is orange. Where there is no comparative data, the circle is grey.
