Census Data

About this website

The UK Census Data website exists to fill a gap in the market. There are plenty of websites which do all kinds of fancy presentations of data from the 2021 census, and, at the other end, the raw data is freely available for those who want to download the csv files and do their own data manipulation.

What's missing is something in the middle: a simple, easy to access interface into the raw data. And that's what this website is for.

All the data here is presented exactly as it appears in the raw data files. No other processing has been carried out (other than rounding off percentages to four decimal places), and the primary data presentation is just the plain numbers. There are also pie chart and bar chart visualisations of the data.

You can either start from the top and drill down through the various levels of geographic areas, or use the search facility to pinpoint a location. At each level, you can see the data for that area in a simple tabular format.

Scope

This website currently contains data from the 2021 census in England and Wales. Scotland has a separate census, and is a year behind the rest of the UK as the most recent Scottish census was in 2022. When the raw data for the Scottish 2022 census is published, we'll look at including it here if it can be done in a way which is compatible with the website structure already created for England and Wales.
