Stansted Mountfitchet is a village and civil parish located within the Uttlesford district of the county of Essex, but on a national level the name 'Stansted' is more commonly used with reference to Stansted Airport. In the 2011 Census, Uttlesford reported a population of 79,443 - although Stansted Mountfitchet itself only accounts for a small part of this.

For parliamentary purposes, Stansted lies within the constituency of Saffron Walden - and the number of benefit claimants in this area was low as of April 2013 at 1.5% - far below the averages for the east of England (3%) or the UK (3.8%) at the time. This is indicative of a strong economy. Likewise, in 2011, Uttlesford was home to 12,523 residents with degrees - 19.8% (2.6% higher than the average for England and Wales that year). This generally corresponds with high levels of social mobility and recruitment.
The 2011 Census showed that Uttlesford was home to a fairly 'normal' economy in English and Welsh terms as far as share by industry sector was concerned. The sector which was most above average was Professional, Scientific and Technical Activities, which accounting for the employment of 9.3% (3,794) of the area's population was 2.7% larger than the average for England and Wales. This was followed by Construction, which was 1.5% larger than average that year. The largest concentration of recruitment activity in the area is located in and around London Stansted Airport - which was the 4th busiest airport in the UK as of 2015. Airlines operating out of Stansted include Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Thomson, and British Airways - with other employers including a Radisson Blu hotel, as well as the airport itself.
