This dataset provides 2011 estimates that classify communal establishments in United Kingdom by management and type of establishment. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

Census estimates provide the most comprehensive and accurate source of data on the population resident in communal establishments. Information about the characteristics of people living in a range of institutions, particularly those in medical and care establishments, are important for a range of social policy issues and for local service planning and resource allocation. This includes accounting for the needs of an ageing population and the social policies associated with long-term care of the sick and elderly.

In Northern Ireland this table is numbered QS413NI.

'Other establishment: Approved premises (probation/bail hostel)' is not applicable in Scotland.

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.
