Constituency Profile

Situated north-east of Cardiff, the constituency is based around the town of Caerphilly, famous for its castle, a type of cheese and for being the birthplace of comedian Tommy Cooper.

The seat stretches north of the town to take in former mining communities along the Rhymney valley. There are a high proportion of residents suffering from health problems - just 75.7% describe themselves as being in good health with 9% describing their health as bad or very bad. The seat has been held by Labour since the first Assembly elections with former Welsh Secretary Ron Davies holding the seat from 1999 to 2003.

In 2011, Jeff Cuthbert won for Labour with 49% of the vote - with Ron Davies, now standing for Plaid Cymru, finishing second with 29%.
