Census 2011

The Census is a survey of all people and households in the country and is the most complete source of information about the borough’s population that we have.

The Census provides essential information from national to neighbourhood level for government, business and the community. The latest Census was held on the 29th March 2011.

Census data and personal information

Census information can be accessed by the public via the internet however; information on individual people is not released to any organisation. Measures are also taken to prevent inadvertent disclosure of information about individuals through the statistical results. For example, information will not be released for areas containing fewer than 100 households.

The Census is important because it allows central and Local Government, health authorities and many other organisations to target their resources more effectively and to plan housing, education, health and transport services for the future.
