The first Census 2021 results are on the way

On 28 June 2022, we will publish the first results from Census 2021.  

The first results will include five datasets containing population and household estimates for England and Wales, at local authority level.   

We will also publish two statistical bulletins and a report on quality and methods. Further details can be found on the first results release page of our website (please scroll down).

Details of later releases can be viewed on our proposed outputs and release plans pages.

Read our blog where Jen Woolford, Director of Health, Population and Methods Transformation, explains what you can expect from the first results and how we have reached this stage. 

Our downloadable resources page  has products that will help you to promote the release of first results. These include editorial copy, logos and leaflets. We will add to this page regularly.
