2011 Census

2011 Census logo

Results from the 2011 Census, carried out on 27 March 2011, are now available.


What is the census?

The census is carried out every 10 years by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and is the only time every person and household is counted right across the UK.

In the ten years since the previous national census (March 2001) people have come and gone, families have grown, expectations and lifestyles have altered. As a result, the face of Derbyshire has changed.

The 2011 census is vital in measuring these changes. A number of questions vary with each census for example, questions regarding civil partnerships, second homes and recent migration were included for the first time.

The information it supplies will help decision makers improve and develop public services. Its findings affect everyone.
