BBC Woman's Hour has mapped the worst places in Britain to live if you're a woman.
The study also broke up participants's responses by three age groups: 18-30, 30-65, and over 65.
In recognition that at different stages in life, different factors become more important than others, the study looked at indicators such as employment, school quality, and social isolation in local authorities.
It showed some fluctuations in the ranking giving to different local authorities, and where different age groups departed from the core index results.
