Percentage

The rural nature of the village with its wide geographical spread (one of the largest in Hampshire) and the lack of public trans- port is reflected by the 1200 plus roadworthy vehicles kept in the village, which averages 2 per household. The number of households without a vehicle were 34 (7.5%) with half these being persons over 75 and living in the village centre. This com- pares to 24% for Hampshire as a whole, confirming the dependency on the car in a rural village.

Comparison shows a decline in the number of children under 16 years of age and a corresponding increase in persons of pensionable age.

The number of persons living alone in households show a decline of 3%.
