The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is publishing a range of 2021 census datasets, in stages, during 2022 and 2023. All 2021 census data published to date can found on the NOMIS website - the official website for census and labour market statistics produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). NOMIS also provides access to statistics from previous censuses.
As data are released, the Council is carrying out analysis of the data to draw out key insights about the Brent population. These are all being published on Brent Open Data. Reports and resources published to date are listed below:
The ONS has produced an interactive mapping tool which allows exploration of 2021 census data for different topics for areas across England & Wales. The tool is being updated and developed as more census data are released.
The Greater London Authority (GLA) has produced a London Census Explorer mapping tool which allows exploration of census data at ward and LSOA level across London. As with the ONS tool, it is being updated as more census data are released.
To explore census data for a specific area and build an area profile - see the ONS Build a custom area profile - this allows users to get data by different area types, for example local neighbourhood or ward.
The ONS has also provided an interactive visualisation to help explore how the Brent population has changed over the last ten years and how it compared with other areas.
And for fun, you can play the ONS Census quiz to see how well you know your own area.
