Census 2021 analysis programme

The Census 2021 analysis programme features research that we plan to publish over the next three years using Census 2021 data. The programme will produce facts and figures about the population of England and Wales, as well as statistics that relate to important public policies. Our aim is to share the latest analysis so that decision makers can use it to shape the policies and services we all use.

The articles will become more complex over time, linking with further data, and making comparisons with other articles.

The first year of the Census 2021 analysis programme will start in 2023 and we will release more focused analysis in years two and three.

Analysis by topic

The programme includes analysis on a wide range of topics, including:

  • ageing
  • demography
  • education
  • equalities
  • ethnic group, national identity, language and religion
  • health, disability and unpaid care

  • international migration
  • labour market
  • sexual orientation and gender identity
