What is the census?
A census is a count of all people and households in the country that takes place every ten years. It asks people about subjects such as work, health, ethnic background, education and marital status. The responses build a picture of today’s society which helps central and local government, health authorities, businesses, voluntary sector organisations and communities target resources and plan for years to come.
The 2011 Census took place on 27 March 2011. In England and Wales the 2011 Census was organised and carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
You can find out more information about the data that is available from the Census by visiting the ONS website.
To help build a picture of the communities within East Northamptonshire, we have produced parish profiles (where the data is available at parish level) and have published them below.
