We analyse the characteristics of residents in communal establishments in 2011. Types of communal establishments include: hospitals, care homes, prisons, defence bases, boarding schools and student halls of residence. Characteristics include demographic and geographical analyses at national, regional and local levels. In 2011, communal establishment residents represented 1.7% of all usual residents in England and Wales. This was an increase from 1.6% in 2001. Males increased by 15% over this period, compared with just 4.2% for females.
An insight into the characteristics of built-up areas in England and Wales. We look at comparisons between built-up areas of different sizes, as well as between built-up areas and non built-up areas. In 2011, 95% of the resident population lived in built-up areas, with the smallest built-up areas having a population of just over 100, and the largest having a population of nearly 9.8 million.
A brief overview of average (median) house prices using estimates from the sale prices of residential properties in England and Wales between 1995 and 2013. We look at the trends and features of average house prices paid over this period for 3 different geographies: local authorities, parliamentary constituencies and middle layer super output areas (MSOAs).
A range of data sources on housing presenting 14 housing summary measures, which provide an overview of the availability and affordability of privately-owned and social housing for local authorities in England and Wales.
We analyse residents aged 16 and over who had a work-related second address outside the local authority of where they usually live. Analyses are presented at national and local authority levels, including by occupational groups and qualification levels. This information is useful to gain an understanding of local communities and the presence of residents from other local authorities as a result of employment. In 2011, around 1 in 160 adults had a second address for work outside their local authority.
