A ward is an area within a local authority, typically used for electoral purposes.
Wards are usually named after local neighbourhoods, thoroughfares, parishes, landmarks or geographical features and in some cases historical connections to the area.

NB: In May 2018 Hull underwent a ward boundary review and as a result both the number and geographical coverage of wards in the city changed. Many statistics are not currently available by these new ward boundaries. Wherever possible, where new ward level data is not available, figures have been aggregated up from LSOA level data using a best fit methodology. However, if LSOA level data is not available then this ward data may be missing from the Hull Data Observatory.
