2011 Census Analysis

The Census collects information every 10 years about the characteristics of people and households in Northern Ireland. It is used by central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to plan and provide future services for us all. The 2011 Census took place on 27 March 2011.

Due to the breadth and depth of 2011 census results available, the pre-planned statistics have been published in four main releases. Further releases will cover more specialist output products, e.g. microdata and origin-destination statistics.

A list of all standard output tables from the 2011 Census in Northern Ireland is available. Footnotes and definitions to accompany these tables can be found in the Census 2011 Definitions and Output Classifications document.

Supporting documentation on the release of census data can be accessed on the NISRA Website.

For more detail on the content and schedule of our future releases visit the Northern Ireland Census 2011 Output Prospectus.
