At the time the 2001 Census was the most comprehensive survey of the UK population. It was carried out on Sunday 29 April 2001. (For more up-to-date population estimates see the Registrar General's Mid Year Population estimates in the Population Estimates section of the Observatory).
Please note that results are becoming available from the recent 2011 Census. More information is available by selecting the the link entitled 2011 Census (on the right hand side of the screen).
More information about the 2001 Census is available on hertsdirect.org by selecting the link entitled About the 2001 Census (on the right hand side of the screen).
Results are available in several different sets of tables (available at a variety of geographic levels):
- Key Statistics Tables give the headline results for the main census variables. There are also a separate set of profiles for Parishes.
- Standard Tables give more detailed results comparing two or more variables, but are only available at Ward level or above.
- Census Area Statistics Tables also give results comparing two or more variables, but are less detailed as they are available down to Output Area level. Included in the Census Area Statistics tables are the Univariate Tables which provide less detailed tables on a broad range of subjects.
- Origin-Destination Matrices give results for Travel to work and migration results comparing information on where people live and where they work or where they live one year prior to census day.
- Parish Profiles give summary results at Parish level. More detailed information on Parishes is available in the Key Statistics.
Many tables of 2001 Census results have been published on hertsdirect.org. To help find the results you need, the results have been categorised by the topic of the table. To search using this categorisation, select the link entitled Find 2001 Census results by topic (on the right hand side of the screen).
