Bespoke analysis on people who identified as Cornish on Census 2021 of England and Wales. It explores their characteristics and how their health, housing, work and education outcomes differ from those who did not identify as Cornish and the England and Wales population overall.  This analysis is in line with our census White Paper commitments.

The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs
  • are well explained and readily accessible
  • are produced according to sound methods
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
