How to find 2001 Census data...

To identify tables by topic, we recommend you start with the table finder. Alternatively browse the full catalogue of tables for each of the key statistics, quick statistics and detailed characteristics series.

Table Finder
Table finder allows you to identify the table you need (from a list of hundreds) based on the topics you are interested in. You can then view and download data for the table.
Key Statistics (KS)
The Key Statistics series provides summary figures covering the full range of topics from the census. These figures are available from national level down to the very small census output areas.
Univariate Tables (UV)
The Univariate tables generally provides information about a single census topic. The classifications used are usually the full versions with the most categories so provide the most detailed information available from the census about the topic. Like the Key Statistics, these tables are available from national level down to the very small census output areas.
Census Area Statistics (CS)
The Census Area Statistics series cross tabulates two or more topics. Data in this family of tables have a minimum population threshold (size) of 100 persons and 40 households. This means that they can be produced for output areas (OAs) and higher geographies. They provide the most detailed results possible for OAs.
Standard Tables (ST)
Like the Census Area Statistics series, the Standard Tables series cross tabulates two or more topics. Tables are released for wards and higher geographies. They are similar to Census Area Statistics tables but provide considerably more detail about the topics than their local equivalents, as the larger population means the risk of disclosure of personal information is lower.
Census Area Statistics Theme Tables (CT)
The census area statistics theme tables Contain information on a range of subjects about a particular theme combined into single tables. Presented as 9 tables for output areas and above.
Standard Theme Tables (TT)
The standard theme tables contain information on a range of subjects about a particular theme combined in single tables for ease of reference. Presented as 20 tables for wards and higher areas.
Origin-destination data (also known as flow data)
Origin-destination data (also known as flow data) will include the travel-to-work and migration patterns of individuals, cross-tabulated by variables of interest (for example occupation).
