Page updated on: 18/12/2018

Carmarthenshire is a very diverse county in terms of its people and its geography.  The county is made up of 58 electoral wards with 74 elected Members.   

Individual profiles have been prepared for each of these wards.  The profile provides a summary of the key characteristics of the ward as well as valuable local information. The ward profiles draw upon a wide array of data sources, and their standardised layout enables the quick and easy comparison of areas, an investigation of patterns, and identification of variations.
