Census 2021

The census is undertaken every 10 years and is a survey that gives the most accurate estimate of people and households in England and Wales. The most recent survey was held in 2021.

The information provided helps decide how important local services are planned and funded. These include things like schools, doctors’ surgeries, hospitals, libraries and bus routes.

The census asks questions about individuals and households and how we live. No other survey gives as much information about our society and future needs.

The first results from the Census 2021 have been published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) and  includes key information covering population, population density, gender and age and household numbers.

On Census Day, 21 March 2021, the number of households in the Winchester district was 51,700 which shows an increase of 10.3% (4,835 households) when compared to the data from the previous census completed in 2011. 

We have put together the published results for the Winchester district into an infographic that can be viewed from the document links on the right of this page.

ONS will release further datasets from the Census 2021 in phases during the winter 2022 and into 2023 and this page will be updated with the latest data as is published.
