Making sense of the Census results

TomS - Head Tom Simper Jun 28, 2022, 12:00 PM

The first results of the 2021 Census published on June 28th show the population of England and Wales was 6% higher on Census day 2021, compared to Census day 2011. The number of households was also 6% higher.

Over the same period property prices rose by an average of 39%, urban areas outperforming their rural counterparts.

The majority (75%) of people live in urban areas but the rate of population and household growth in rural areas appears to be much higher due to the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown.

Many students and young people returned home and households combined temporarily boosting the rural population.

Since 1801 a census has taken place in England and Wales every 10 years, except for 1941. The 2021 Census is officially the 24th and a 'digital-first' census, the majority of responses were completed online.
