This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates that classify non-UK born short-term residents in England and Wales by passports held. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.
This dataset counts each person only once, therefore people only appear in one category even if they hold more than one passport.

In cases where a person recorded having more than one passport, they were categorised in the following priority order: 1. UK passport, 2. Irish passport, 3. Other passport
A non-UK born short-term resident is defined as anyone living in England and Wales who was born outside the UK, who intended to stay in the UK for a period of between 3 and 12 months.
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.
