We are pleased to announce the release of 2011 Census Key Statistics and Quick Statistics for built-up areas in England and Wales on 18 June 2013. Built-up areas provide information on the villages, towns and cities where people live.
Note: Built-up areas are only available with datasets produced at output area level.
Census data for these areas, previously called urban areas, have been produced every 10 years since 1981. For 2011 Census outputs the areas have been renamed built-up areas. This will help to avoid previous inconsistency in terminology with the rural-urban classification, and provide a name that more accurately describes the geography.
Further details about the methodology and guidance on use are available in the user guidance (pdf).
