The largest part of this website is our collection of historical statistics, but these are always for precisely defined areas, usually administrative units, not "places". We know about the following units named after Chatham. Each has its own "home page" with much more information. Click on a tick to go directly to a particular statistical theme.

Be careful! A unit may cover just the town or village, but it may include a big surrounding area. For example, in England and Wales rural districts — units with RD or RSD suffixes — may even exclude the places they are named after. The "Units covering this place" tab lists units whose boundaries contained Chatham.
