The ONS doesn't publish census data directly for Combined Authorities. The figures on this page are aggregated from census areas contained within West Yorkshire. They may not, therefore, be precisely accurate. Age-standardised statistics and population density are not available for aggregated datasets.

This dataset provides Census 2021 estimates that classify all household spaces with at least one usual resident in England and Wales by number of rooms. The estimates are as at Census Day, 21 March 2021.

Summary

A room can be any room in a dwelling apart from bathrooms, toilets, halls or landings, kitchens, conservatories or utility rooms. All other rooms, for example, living rooms, studies, bedrooms, separate dining rooms and rooms that can only be used for storage are included. If two rooms have been converted into one, they are counted as one room.

The number of rooms is recorded by address, this means that for households living in a shared dwelling the number of rooms are counted for the whole dwelling and not the individual household.

This definition is based on the Valuation Office Agency’s (VOA) definition.

Quality Statement

It is inappropriate to measure change in number of rooms from 2011 to 2021, as Census 2021 used Valuation Office Agency data for this variable. Instead use Census 2021 estimates for number of bedrooms for comparisons over time.
