The Fourth release of 2011 Census statistics will take place between August and October 2013. Local Characteristics tables will be released in three phases, according to geography.
Phases of geography
The first phase will be Local Characteristics tables for output areas, as well as lower and middle layer super output areas. This phase will also release statistics for Wales and for England, the regions, unitary and local authorities, and England and Wales.
The second phase will be for wards.
The third phase will be for the remaining geographies. This includes parishes (England) and communities (Wales), parliamentary and National Assembly for Wales constituencies, and health areas.
Each of the phases will be released via the ONS website and the Nomis website.
The planned tables may be subject to redesign before release, as a result of the application of statistical disclosure control.
For the proposed content of the fourth release, download the “2011 Census Prospectus: Tables and schedule”. Examples of tables include:
Age by sex and resident type.
Sex and age by ethnic group.
Sex and age by economic activity.
Sex and age by general health and provision of unpaid care.
Country of birth by age and sex.
Sex and occupation by age.
Dwelling type and accommodation type by household space type.
The release will support the output area hierarchy and wards, and statistics will also be available at unitary and local authority level, regional, national and health areas.
Due to statistical disclosure control, some tables which were planned for the fourth release of 2011 Census statistics have been moved up a geographic level. To see a full list of the tables that have changed geography, download “Changes to tables since 2011 output consultation”.
The statistics in the fourth release will generally correspond to the 2001 Census Area Statistics tables. Table layouts for the fourth release are being refined. This page will be updated when they are published.
