How the UK voted by area

Here’s how the 12 regions voted in order of support for Leave:

  1. West Midlands 59.2%
  2. East Midlands 58.5%
  3. North East 58.0%
  4. Yorkshire & Humber 57.7%
  5. Eastern 56.5%
  6. North West 53.7%
  7. South West 52.6%
  8. Wales 52.5%
  9. South West 51.8%
  10. Northern Ireland 44.3%
  11. London 40.1%
  12. Scotland 38.0%

So nine of the ten regions of England voted to leave – all except London.

UPDATE: Also interesting to look at it just in terms of the margin to leave, as not all regions the same size. They are

  1. West Midlands +548,512
  2. East Midlands +442,443
  3. Eastern +431,751
  4. Yorkshire & Humber +422,639
