Oswestry 12°c

The census has to be completed by Sunday.

PEOPLE in Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales will join millions of others across the country this weekend in filling out the 2021 census.

Every 10 years, UK households sit down to complete the questionnaire to help paint a picture of who we are, how we live, and what we do.

The next one in England takes place this Sunday (March 21) and is likely to reflect some of the most seismic shifts in society for generations, from Brexit to the Covid-19 crisis.

But what did we learn from the last census? Here’s what it told us about our local area…

What has changed

According to 2011’s census, Shropshire had a population of 306,129, with a 50 per cent split between men and women.

For the first time this year, people aged 16 and over can answer additional voluntary questions about their gender identity and sexual orientation.

The Office for National Statistics, which runs the census in England and Wales, says the answers will help shape services for the LGBT+ community and promote equality.

People in the area were also a little longer in the tooth than others across England with an average age of 42.6 years – compared to the national average of 39.3.

Religion and ethnicity

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted harsh inequalities among different parts of the population, including between different ethnic groups.

In Shropshire, 98 per cent described their ethnicity as white in 2011, while one per cent was Asian, 0.7 per cent said they were of mixed ethnicity and 0.2 per cent black.

A further 0.2 per cent stated another ethnicity.

Of the major world religions, Christians formed the largest community, comprising around 210,300 people in 2011.

This was followed by Islam (989), and Buddhism (792).

“Information from the 2011 Census has already been crucial in our understanding of mortality for different groups during the pandemic,” said Pete Benton, census director of operations.

“With fresh data from 2021, we will be able to update the analysis we have already done to give us the richest data we have ever had.”

Country of birth

Around 95 per cent of people living in Shropshire in 2011 said they were born in the UK, while two per cent were from EU nations including Ireland, and two per cent from elsewhere.

“Over the last couple of years we have seen lots of reports about the decline in immigration from the EU – and more recently, with the Covid crisis, suggestions of an exodus of migrants from the UK,” said Madeleine Sumption, director of the Migration Observatory at the University of Oxford.

“Problems with data collection during the pandemic mean it’s not clear how many people left the UK last year.

“But even if there has been a big fall in the migrant population over the last couple of years, it’s unlikely to offset a decade of migration since 2011.”

The world of work

Few aspects of our lives have been changed as much by Covid-19 as how we work, and for many of us, where we work.

About 23,600 people aged 16 and over in Shropshire said they worked mainly at or from home at the last census, amounting to roughly 12 per cent of the working-age population – higher than the England average of eight per cent.

“We know that about half of the UK workforce worked from home during the first lockdown in 2020,” said Christina Marriott, chief executive of the Royal Society for Public Health.

“This suggests that we can expect a significant rise in home-based working from the 2021 census results,” she added.

And while the charity’s research suggested there are many benefits to home working, such as saving time and money normally spent commuting, people can also feel isolated from colleagues and find it more difficult to switch off from work.

The RSPH is calling for employers to support staff to make home working a more positive experience.

What you need to know

The census should take about 10 minutes for the household questions and a further 10 minutes per person for the individual questions, says the ONS.

Every householder is responsible for completing it for their household, either by answering the questions for all household members or making everyone answer their own.

If you do not complete the census, you could be fined up to £1,000.

Denbigh 9°c

What did the last census tell us about Denbighshire?

PEOPLE in Denbighshire will join millions of others across the country this weekend in filling out the 2021 census.

Just once every 10 years, UK households sit down to complete the questionnaire to help paint a picture of who we are, how we live, and what we do.

The vast hoard of information is used by councils, central government and charities to help run vital public services such as hospitals, housing and schools.

The next one in Wales takes place this Sunday (March 21) and is likely to reflect some of the most seismic shifts in society for generations – from Brexit to the Covid-19 crisis.

What has changed

According to 2011’s census, Denbighshire had a population of 93,734.

It was slightly more female at 51 per cent to 49 per cent male.

For the first time this year, people aged 16 and over can answer additional voluntary questions about their gender identity and sexual orientation.

The Office for National Statistics, which runs the census in England and Wales, says the answers will help shape services for the LGBT+ community and promote equality.

People in the area were also a little younger than others across Wales with an average age of 39.8 years – slightly lower than the national average of 40.6.

Religion and ethnicity

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted harsh inequalities among different parts of the population, including between different ethnic groups.

In the county, 97.4 per cent described their ethnicity as white in 2011, while 1.6 per cent were Asian, 0.9 per cent said they were of mixed ethnicity and 0.1 per cent black.

Of the major world religions, Christians formed the largest community in Denbighshire, comprising around 60,100 people in 2011.

The next top religions included Islam (469) and Buddhism (266).

“Information from the 2011 Census has already been crucial in our understanding of mortality for different groups during the pandemic,” said Pete Benton, census director of operations.

“With fresh data from 2021, we will be able to update the analysis we have already done to give us the richest data we have ever had.”

The world of work

Few aspects of our lives have been changed as much by Covid-19 as how we work, and for many of us, where we work.

About 5,300 people aged 16 and over in Denbighshire said they worked mainly at or from home at the last census, amounting to roughly nine per cent of the working-age population – similar to the Wales average of eight per cent.

“We know that about half of the UK workforce worked from home during the first lockdown in 2020,” said Christina Marriott, chief executive of the Royal Society for Public Health.

“This suggests that we can expect a significant rise in home-based working from the 2021 census results,” she added.
