Facts and figures about councillors

Some key metrics from the Local Government Group’s 2010 census of councillors. Of course this will include district, unitary and county councillors who all have hugely differing roles:

68.5% male
96.3% white
85.9% non-disabled
Only 28% below the age of 55
47.2% retired
Most councillors give around 16-20 hours per week
56% do other unpaid voluntary work

Not my facts just reporting them 🙂
