Dataset Details

This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates that classify usual residents aged 16 and over in England and Wales by marital and civil partnership status, by sex and by age. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

This information helps us to understand changing patterns of marriage, cohabitation and partnerships within households.  Information about trends in marriage, separation and divorce is used for planning and resource allocation for housing and services. Together with information on relationships and housing, it helps assess levels of overcrowding.

Since December 2005 same-sex couples in the UK have been able to form civil partnerships, a legal status that gives rights and responsibilities similar to that of marriage.
