DC1108EW Living arrangements by sex by age
Select geography type
This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates that classify usual residents aged 16 and over in households in England and Wales by living arrangements, by sex and by age. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.
Estimates of living arrangements help to identify and understand the changing patterns of marriage, cohabitation and partnerships within households and provide evidence of the experiences for people associated with different arrangements that can help to inform the social inclusion agenda.
Living arrangements differ from marital and civil partnership status because cohabiting takes priority over other categories. For example if a person is divorced and cohabiting, in results for living arrangements, they are classified as cohabiting.
References to civil partnerships are not present in estimates from the 2001 Census which was conducted before the introduction of same-sex civil partnerships in December 2005. In addition, unlike the 2001 Census, in 2011 no distinction was made between people married for the first time and those in a second or subsequent marriage.
