These plans detail the analysis we aim to publish on the topic of UK armed forces veterans in the first year of the Census 2021 analysis programme, and the proposals we are considering publishing in following years. We will provide updates to these plans after user feedback and further research and testing of the data. We will provide article publication dates on our release calendar in "Upcoming releases". We intend to confirm publication releases four weeks before publication. We will update this page with links to articles when they are published.

Employment trends of the UK armed forces veteran population
This analysis will look at employment trends among the UK armed forces veteran population in England and Wales and identify potential barriers to employment. This might include economic inactivity because of long-term illness, or the provision of unpaid care, for example.
The financial situation of UK armed forces veterans
This analysis will identify the financial situations of UK armed forces veterans in England and Wales. It will help to determine whether or not veterans are more likely to find themselves in financial distress than the general population. We aim to provide this analysis by combining Census 2021 data with administrative data from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) alongside survey data.
UK armed forces veterans and the criminal justice system
This analysis will look at the characteristics associated with offending behaviour among UK armed forces veterans. It will do this by analysing their activity in the criminal justice system for England and Wales. We will provide this analysis by linking to data from the Ministry of Justice (MOJ). It aims to help the government to plan additional support for veterans who may be more vulnerable than others.
