Census information from 2001
The National Census 2001
Since 1801, every 10 years the nation has set aside one day for the Census - a count of all people and households.
This is the most complete source of information about the population that we have. The latest Census was held on Sunday 29 April 2001.
Every effort is made to include everyone, and that is why the Census is so important. It is the only survey which provides a detailed picture of the entire population, and is unique because it covers everyone at the same time and asks the same core questions everywhere, making it easy to compare different parts of the country.
The information the Census provides allows central and local Government, health authorities and many other organisations to target their resources more effectively and to plan housing, education, health and transport services for years to come.
The Census 2001 provides spreadsheets, graphs, and opinions on the following datasets within the Basildon Borough: Ethnicity, Religion, Health, Housing, People, and Places. (Part 1 of the Key Statistics reports for English and Welsh Local Authorities).
Fully detailed data is not currently available. When the Office for National Statistics releases fresh data it will be published here as a journal of gathered statistics.
