The demographic change in this seat is a bit more varied than suggested by the write-up - there are certainly a lot of Asians moving into Woodford Green/East Chingford, but the areas to the west and south of the constituency are more influenced by Edmonton and Walthamstow respectively - areas where there are more blacks than Asians. Also, there are signs that Highams Park in particular is attracting a fair number of the Guardian-reading set. North Chingford by contrast has seen much less change and continues to resemble areas to the north such as Loughton.
I changed the profile as a result of your comments, but it looks like I was right the first time. The asian population has doubled, while the black population has increased by just 1%. My comments were based on my knowledge of Woodford, where my mother lived until her recent death.
