Census 2011 – Birmingham Infographic

by on 26 September, 2013

The Customer Knowledge Team recently produced a report comparing data from the 2001 and 2011 census.

As part of this project, BCC commissioned the following infographic.

    What are the numbers that rel;ate to these percentage changes – as a point of clarity it should show in it’s title that it is a comparison rather than a picture of how Brum is now

    • Thank you for your comment.
      All the data used to create the infographic is public data and available from the ONS website at: for 2011 data and: for 2001 data.

      Many thanks

        Thanks for that – the 2011 stuff is easy to access and is very interesting to see the actual figures
        But I am having a little trouble with the 2001 figures

      • The 2001 data can be a little tricky to find at first. See below for a rough guide to accessing the data:

        Go to:
        In the ‘DETAILED STATISTICS’ box (top right of the screen) click on ‘Wizard query’.
        On the next screen click on ‘all datasets by theme’ (second option in the ‘selection method’ section at the top of the screen)
        A list of available folders will be displayed. Click on the ‘+’ next to ‘Census of Population’ folder
        All 2001 census information is accessible from here.

        I would recommend that you start with the standard tables and go from there.

        If you have any further question about navigating the site you can check the ONS forums or contact their support team via email. Both of these can be found on the nomisweb front page.

        I hope this helps.
