Census 2021 interactive content : Census maps

Using Census 2021 topic summary data, we created an interactive map that allows you to compare census data in different areas across England and Wales.

Census maps (opens in a new tab) 

Using the Census maps tool, you can find out what people's lives were like in your area and elsewhere on Census Day in 2021. This could include which areas had the highest and lowest percentages of:

  • people married or in civil partnerships
  • people by sexual orientation
  • people in employment
  • people in full-time education
  • people with a long-term health problem or disability
  • households which used renewable heating for their central heating

The map covers local authority areas and neighbourhoods, allowing you to see detailed data about your community.

You can also see how areas have changed between the censuses in 2011 and 2021, by selecting "Mode" and "Change since 2011".

You can find more information about the Census 2021 topic summary releases (opens in a new tab)  on the Office for National Statistics (ONS) website.
