Phase one of Census 2021 results - Topic summaries

Now that we've published the first results, we will publish topic summaries and facts and figures about areas in the rest of phase one.

We will publish the first of our series of topic summaries in October 2022 and the last by the end of 2022.

We will release the summaries in the order we published on the release plans page on the Office for National Statistics (ONS) website. However, we will remain flexible to any changing user need.

Census 2021 topic summaries

Topic summaries include sets of data, or datasets, most of which include data from a single variable. A variable is a particular characteristic of a person or household, for example, religion or accommodation type.

These topic summaries will include:

  • demography and migration
  • ethnic group, national identity, language, and religion
  • UK armed forces veterans
  • housing
  • labour market and travel to work
  • sexual orientation and gender identity
  • education
  • health, disability, and unpaid care

Facts and figures for your area

Facts and figures will be available across a range of topics for each area in England and Wales.

We produce profiles for all geographical areas. These allow you to easily compare statistics for local areas with other areas or the whole of England and Wales.
