Many people are struggling with their finances right now amid the cost-of-living crisis, but in some parts of Wigan they may be finding it a bit easier to make ends meet.
We have compiled a list of the neighbourhoods in the borough with the highest estimated average annual household income, based on the latest figures published by the Office for National Statistics.
The highest average income, according to the statistics, is £45,800 while the lowest is £26,400.
The ONS breaks Wigan down into 40 neighbourhoods called Middle-layer Super Output Areas (MSOA).
The average income statistics are the latest available by neighbourhood, published by the Office for National Statistics in March 2020 and relating to the financial year ending 2018.
Total annual household income is the sum of the before-tax income of every member of the household, plus any income from benefits.
