  • Key characteristics of the non-UK born short-term resident population of England and Wales such as population size, general health, religion, ethnic group, economic activity and occupation.

  • The tables in this release provide additional information to the previously released set of five tables on the non-UK born short-term resident population of England and Wales published on 26 March 2013. Those five tables (on age, sex, country of birth, economic activity and passports held) are reproduced in this release to ensure a complete and consistent set of outputs are available on the non-UK born short-term resident population. As a result there are small differences in the classifications used in these tables in this release compared to the previously published tables.

Workplace and workday

Workplace is the population estimate for a given geography during standard working hours (taking account of the number of people who, for example, travel into a city to work). Effectively, this is a geographic redistribution of the usually resident population who are in work, allocated to their place of work.

Workday is the workplace population estimate plus those who are also usually resident in the area but not working. This base is produced for the usually resident population (those who are resident or intending to be resident in the UK for 12 months or more). To produce the workday population, all other respondents who do not have a job the week before census day are allocated to the area where they usually live, and students are allocated to their term-time address.
