Power of equality

A recent study has found Harrow is the third most equal place to live in the country.
Based on data from the Office for National Statistics, the research was conducted by the New Economics Foundation and published by the What Works Centre for Wellbeing. It analysed the gap across the country between people who are doing well and those who are struggling.
Harrow came third behind Enfield and Cheshire East in the 10 most equal places. The researchers looked at factors including median income, income inequality, unemployment levels, education levels and ethnicity.
Areas with the biggest difference in wellbeing were those where there was a ‘leave’ majority over Britain’s decision to exit the European Union. Harrow voted to stay in – with almost 55% casting a ‘remain’ vote.
