The Office for National Statistics (ONS) carries out a national census every ten years to find out about more about the people who live in England and Wales and about the make-up of local neighbourhoods. The latest ONS census took place on 27 March 2011 and initial headline data for Bury and all other Local Authorities was released on 16 July 2012. The Statistics and census information link on the right links to a range of information sources and search tools including the 2011 ONS census.
More detailed census data as Local Authority wards and neighbourhoods and data on specific topics and issues such as economic activity will be released in stages from November 2012 onwards. Until this more detailed data becomes available, a subset of the Census 2001 information can be found under headings on the left of Ethnicity and Religion, Health, People Places and Families, Population, Work .
Information on your neighbourhood can also be found on the Neighbourhood Statistics web site where searches can be made by postcode, area name, subject or use of an interactive map. The national statistics site also contains many items of interest from the growth in the economy to the popularity of babies names.
