ONS invite you to create a custom dataset

This is a unique innovation for official statistics and will allow users to look for interactions between topics which are important to them as well as to build their own Census 2021 datasets.

To use the tool, simply select a population to get started. From there, you can change the geography of your dataset and filter the data by sex and age, and add as many variables as you want. You can also access pre-built flexible datasets, which you can customise with additional variables.

Today's release marks the start of a new phase of Census 2021 outputs, and it is just one of the products coming this year to help you find the data you need. You can find out more about upcoming new ways to access Census 2021 data in this blog on the National Statistical website.
