This dataset includes data from the 2011 Census released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS)


Notes and Definitions

1. The main population base for outputs from the 2011 Census is the usual resident population as at census day (27 March 2011).

Although the population base for enumeration included non-UK short-term residents, these are not included in the main outputs from the 2011 Census, but are analysed separately. All outputs, unless specified, are produced using only usual residents of the UK.

2. For 2011 Census purposes, a usual resident of the UK is anyone who, on census day, was in the UK and had stayed or intended to stay in the UK for a period of 12 months or more, or had a permanent UK address and was outside the UK and intended to be outside the UK for less than 12 months.

3. Further information about the census estimates, including details about the methodology and other definitions used, how other population sub-groups are counted, Output Area maintenance and other geographic information, are available on the ONS website at http://www.ons.gov.uk/census


Confidentiality

ONS as the executive arm of the UK Statistics Authority has a legal obligation not to reveal information collected in confidence in the census about individual people and households. The confidentiality of all census results, including the counts in this release, is protected by a combination of a variety of disclosure protection measures.

Industry
The industry in which a person aged 16 to 74 works relates to their main job, and is derived from information provided on the main activity of their employer or business. This is used to assign responses to an industry code based on the Standard Industrial Classification 2007.

Main job
The 'Main job' of a person aged 16 to 74 is the job in which they usually work the most hours. For people not working at the time of the census the main job relates to the person's last job. Topics based on employment all relate to a person’s main job.

Comparable data from the 2001 Census is not included as the industrial classification used then (a modified version of the UK Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities 1992 – UK SIC (92)) is considerably different

Occupation
A person's occupation relates to their main job and is derived from either their job title or details of the activities involved in their job. This is used to assign responses to an occupation code based on the Standard Occupational Classification 2010 (SOC2010).
Responses are coded using the full classification of SOC2010 - unit group level – but the most detail used in standard results from the census is the 81 minor group level that is used in this table. Other results that provide information for occupation, sometimes cross-classified with other topics, often provide detail at the major group level only.

Comparability with 2001 Census
The 2001 Census data was coded to the Standard Occupational Classification 2000 (SOC2000). This is largely similar at the Major Group level except for the "Managers, Directors and Senior Officials" and "Professional Occupations" groups which should not be comapared directly.
