General Health and Disability

The 2011 England and Wales Census took place on 27 March 2011, collecting information on demography, ethnicity, language, religion, health, housing, education, the labour market, travel to work and migration.  National and local government, and many other organisations, use this information in a variety of ways, such as allocating funding, planning services, and otherwise understanding local populations.

The second release of data, in December 2012, provided the first sets of topic-specific ‘Key’ and ‘Quick Statistics’ by local authority.  Census questions directly related to health covered self-reported general health status, long-term health problems and disability, and provision of unpaid care.
