The UK Singles Map

Over half of the adult population in England and Wales are single. Islington in London is the best place to go if you are on the look out for an unmarried date. In this London borough almost two out of three men and 57% of the women are single. If you are single in East Devon you should definitely catch the train up to London. In East Devon three quarters of all the men and more than 80% of women are married.

The UK's Office for National Statistics has produced a number of Google Maps visualizing data from the UK census. The Single People in England and Wales map displays the number of adult singles in each census tract in England and Wales. You can click on any census tract on the map to view the percentages of single men and women in the area and compare this figure to the national average.
