England and Wales East/West Divide By Population

Map created by Reddit user u/willtkred

The map above shows the East/West divide in England and Wales based on 2021 census numbers and official county borders. This is a companion map to England’s North/South Divide Based Only On Population.

Some controversy arose on reddit regarding the designation of cities within the divide. User Elegant_Celery400 claimed that the map was not actually based “by population” but rather “by county population,” resulting in anomalies such as Leeds being designated as “West” when it’s actually further east than the notional boundary line. User u/willtkred responded, acknowledging the limitation of using county population and expressing the difficulty of narrowing down the data to specific cities’ locations relative to dividing lines.
