This dataset provides 2011 estimates that classify, at their non term-time address, schoolchildren and full-time students aged 4 and over in England and Wales, by sex. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

In most census results students are counted at their term-time address to help to provide an accurate measure of the usually resident population in that area. A small number of census results identify students separately at their non term-time address to provide basic information for that area out of term-time.

Similar estimates from the 2001 Census were provided in table UV05.

Statistical Disclosure Control
In order to protect against disclosure of personal information from the 2011 Census, there has been swapping of records in the Census database between different geographic areas, and so some counts will be affected. In the main, the greatest effects will be at the lowest geographies, since the record swapping is targeted towards those households with unusual characteristics in small areas.

More details on the ONS Census disclosure control strategy may be found on the Statistical Disclosure Control page on the ONS web site.
