Constituency profile

Croydon North is the densest and most ethnically diverse of Croydon's three seats, with large areas of terraced housing interspersed with tower blocks. The local economy is built on retail and businesses exploiting the constituency's good transport links to Gatwick airport and central London.

A third of the population is white; a fifth is Asian, while 31.5% is black Afro-Caribbean - the second highest proportion of any constituency in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures. One in five lives in social housing; one in six works in retail. Transport and storage are also important sectors.

In 2010, Labour's Malcolm Wicks held the seat with 56% of the votes; Conservatives got 24.1%, Liberal Democrats 14% and Greens 2%. But at a by-election following Mr Wicks' death in 2012, Steve Reed won for Labour with a majority of 11,761 votes, pushing the Conservatives into second place.
