How well do you know your town or village?

Maybe you have wondered how many people have a degree, have a mortgage or how many own a car.

Well now you can find out thanks to the Office of National Statistics.

The body has set up a quiz based on the 2011 census results.

Residents are asked to type in their post code which identifies their electoral ward and then asks a series of questions about the area in which they live.

Questions cover subjects including religion, age of population and how many people have a mortgage.

The questions are based on results for every 100 people in the area.

You can take the quiz by visiting http://www.neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk/HTMLDocs/dvc147/index.html

The questions threw up some interesting results.

If you would like to take the test yourself stop reading now.

In the Hailsham Central and North ward the results showed that for every 100 people just 16 were under 16 years of age in the town. The median age for the ward was 46 years old and for every 100 people, 38 have a mortgage on a property.

On the 2011 Census form, respondents could choose from six religions, specify another, state ‘no religion’, or choose not to state their religion. In the quiz, residents are asked how many people they think are Christian or Muslim in each ward.

For every 100 people in the ward, 62 said they were christian, where as none registered themselves as muslim. For every 100 people, the ward has 22 degree level educated residents and 18 do not own a car or van.
