UK Census data

UK Census Key and Quick statistics

The Key and Quick Statistics tables for the United Kingdom bring together data from the 2011 censuses conducted in England and Wales, in Scotland, and in Northern Ireland, to provide UK harmonised data for areas throughout the United Kingdom.

The tables - 26 Key Statistics and 47 Quick Statistics - combine the data first published separately by each of the census offices - the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in England and Wales, National Records of Scotland (NRS) in Scotland, Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) in Northern Ireland.

In most cases the tables published individually for each country were completely harmonised. For a small number of tables, in order to form a UK-wide harmonised table, some categories in the constituent table parts were merged. This means that some categories in UK tables will not be identical to those in the original tables published separately for a specific country.

Further information on the methodology and quality assurance processes used to produce 2011 Census estimates is available from the websites of the office responsible for the census in their respective countries:
