Since 2001 Eastwood has seen a negative net migration away from the town. Which especially apparent within the 25-44 year age group.

The deprivation centile identifies the 1st centile as least deprived and 9th as most. The majority (50%) of Eastwood’s residence fall in the 9th deprivation centile (4,620) with 20% of residents receiving DWP benefits when compared to the national average of around 15%. Furthermore 19% of households live in income deprivation compared to 13.5% in England.

From a health perspective, more than 50% of Eastwood’s population sit in the 9th centile of health deprivation (those with a limiting health condition or claiming government benefits due to poor health).
