Liverpool Wavertree, in the south-west of the city, is largely residential, with a big student population and a large technology park, introducing a new element to the city's traditional employment options, which are still limited in a constituency that also features in the top 40 of households without a car.
More than 16% of its residents are aged 16-to-24, compared with 11.9% for the whole of England and Wales at the 2011 Census. At 5.6% the proportion claiming Jobseeker's Allowance at December 2014 was less than in the neighbouring Walton constituency but in the "top" 40 nationally, at more than double the UK average.
Luciana Berger won the seat, which had been held for 13 years by fellow Labour MP Jane Kennedy, at the 2010 election, when she increased the party's majority and share of the vote to 53.1%, with the Lib Dems taking 34.2% and the Conservatives 7.5%.
