Constituency profile

Manufacturing, while declining, is a major employment sector in Nottingham North. Boots is one of the largest employers. The mining industry, while not as crucial to the area's economy as other, more rural Nottinghamshire seats, was also a major employer until its decline in the late 1980s.

The age profile of the constituency is younger than average, with more under-16s and fewer over-65s. The number of households in which no occupant is employed is higher than average for England and Wales, and a lower than average proportion of people own their own homes.

The constituency has been in Labour hands since its creation, apart from four years from 1983 to 1987, when Conservative Sir Richard Ottaway, later the MP for Croydon South, took the seat. Labour's Graham Allen has been MP since 1987. In 2010 he got 48% of votes with the Conservatives getting 25%, the Lib Dems 17% and the BNP 6%.
