What is the Census?
The 2011 Census was held on Sunday 27 March 2011.
The census is an estimate of the population that is carried out every ten years. Everyone in the UK is asked the same questions about the same day so that a snapshot of the population can be taken at one point in time. The results are used to plan the services and resources you need in your community such as schools, transport, housing and health. The number of people included in the census affects the amount of funding given to each local area for each service.
Other Census data is available on the Key and Quick Statistics webpage.
The age structure of the Royal Borough is fairly close to the national average except for 20 - 24 year age group. This is quite a common feature of non-university towns as students are counted at their term-time address.

How is your data protected?
The data collected in the census is protected by law and is kept strictly confidential. No information is given out that could identify you or your household and no personal data is shared with any local or national government department or business. The information is only used to produce numbers of people that can then be used by everyone to plan and allocate services. The names and addresses are securely filed away and are only released after 100 years for the benefit of historians and people tracing their ancestors.
