1. Overview of demography and migration data

These datasets are part of the Census 2021 topic summary for demography and migration. This topic summary also includes the following publications:

All datasets are Excel xlsx download files.

The five-digit code at the end of each dataset title is the topic summary (TS) reference code.

Protecting personal data

Sometimes we need to make changes to data if it is possible to identify individuals. This is known as statistical disclosure control.

In Census 2021, we:

  • swapped records (targeted record swapping), for example, if a household was likely to be identified in datasets because it has unusual characteristics, we swapped the record with a similar one from a nearby small area (very unusual households could be swapped with one in a nearby local authority)

  • added small changes to some counts (cell key perturbation), for example, we might change a count of four to a three or a five -- this might make small differences between tables depending on how the data are broken down when we applied perturbation
