The constituency is characterized by its low-income demographic, residing mostly in social and former social housing, developed as part of post-WWII regeneration efforts. It includes areas like Huyton and Kirkby, with notable locations such as Knowsley Hall and Park. Identified as one of the UK's most deprived regions, Knowsley also voted in favor of Brexit in the 2016 EU referendum.
