This data represents digitised versions of tables from the 1921 Census county and topic reports. These datasets are being published as part of an ongoing project to digitise census data previously only available in print.
The tables available are the first of several batches of releases. More data will be added as it becomes available. At present the data is available at a district level and above. Lower levels of geography will be included in further releases
County Reports: Contain statistics for each county on a number of different subjects. Tables of this type include 'CR' in their table reference.
Topic Reports: Contain statistics on certain subjects, such as industry and workplace, for England and Wales as a whole.
Terminology: The information is presented using the language and terminology used in the original reports. No attempt is made to update or modernise the text.
Formatting: These tables are presented in a format which has been designed to be the most accessible and usable to a modern audience. As such they may not be in the same format as originally printed and the presentation will differ from the tables seen in the original county and topic reports.
Corrections: During processing of the digitised data, some errors were identified in the original printed versions. Where possible these have been corrected. This means that some of the values presented here will be different to the original printed versions.
Further Information: Detailed information on the individual datasets can be found in the 1921 Census User Guide (pdf) Further information on the 1921 Census enumeration processes can be found in the 1921 General Report (pdf)
