What is the Census?
Every 10 years the Office for National Statistics (ONS) carries out a national census in order to gather information about the population of England and Wales. Topics include age, health, education, ethnicity, language use, work and religion, amongst others. National and local government organisations use this information in a variety of ways, such as allocating funding, planning services, and otherwise understanding local populations.
The 2011 Census took place on 27 March 2011. Data has been released in phases since July 2012 and continues to to be published. A wealth of census data available features on the atlas below.
The Cambridgeshire Atlas | Census 2011 atlas is a profile tool that displays data from the first and second release of census data. This is provided at district, ward, electoral division and parish level. By using the change geography button the user can switch between the different geographies.
