Area Profiles

Page updated on: 02/05/2023

Carmarthenshire is a very diverse county in terms of its people and its geography. Historically, the county has been made up of 58 electoral wards with 74 elected members. However, following a significant review of electoral boundaries conducted by the Boundary Commission for Wales from the May 2022 local elections the county will consist of 51 wards and 75 members. The new ward boundaries from May 2022 onwards can be found on the following page - Electoral ward boundaries.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) have produced a tool ‘Build a custom area profile’ which allows you to get 2021 Census data by different area types, for example your neighbourhood, ward or parish as well as at Local Authority level.

You can:

• find an area by name or postcode
• draw your own area on a map
• choose different topics from Census 2021 data
• save the area you have drawn to use again
• export your area profile as an image or spreadsheet (CSV)
• add your profile to a website
