A beautiful, compelling and eye-opening guide to the way we live in Britain today.
How much more do we drink than we should? Why do immigrants come here? How have house prices changed in the past decade? What do we spend our money on? Britain by Numbers answers all these questions and more, vividly bringing our nation to life in new and unexpected ways by showing who lives here, where we work, who we marry, what crimes we commit and much else besides.
Beautifully designed and illustrated throughout, it takes the reader on a fascinating journey up and down the land, enriching their understanding of a complex - and contradictory - country.
