The 2011 Census estimated the population of Telford and Wrekin to be 166,641. This is lower than the population estimated by our own population model. More information can be found about the differences between these estimates on our population page.
The 2011 Census took place on 27 March 2011. Census forms were sent out to every household by the Office for National Statistics. These forms asked for information about all people present on census day, including marital status, ethnicity, religion, occupation, health, caring responsibilities, access to a car and dwelling type and space.
The Office for National Statistics have begun to release results from the 2011 Census, these data releases will continue into 2013 and beyond as additional analysis is done. We will update this page with our own analysis of 2011 Census results as data is made available.
There will be two main types of analysis:
- Updates - short notes on particular themes covered by the census e.g. population
- Profiles - More detailed analysis of data on a particular theme or for a particular geographic area e.g. Children & young people profile, ward profiles.
There are currently a number of Census updates available and we will continue to add to these as data is release. Profiles will start to be available from March 2013.
