The 10 poorest Manchester neighbourhoods according to average income including Moss Side and Newton Heath

There are stark inequalities across the city with some areas really feeling the pinch.

The average annual household income in Manchester’s ‘poorest’ neighbourhood is less than half of the ‘richest’, according to new data. 

Moss Side West is the area with the lowest average annual household income of just under £30,000, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Didsbury Village on the other hand has an average household income of more than £67,000 - the highest in Manchester.

The latest figures were published by the ONS in October 2023 and cover the financial year ending in 2020.

Below are the 10 ‘poorest’ areas of Manchester based on the figures. We’ve also rounded up the 20 richest in another post.
