DC1201EW Household composition by ethnic group of Household Reference Person (HRP)
Select geography type
This dataset provides 2011 Census estimates that classify households in England and Wales by household composition and by ethnic group of Household Reference Person (HRP). The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.
Estimates that provide insight into household and family relationships aid in the analysis of social structure and help to monitor the changes in the composition and types of households. They are used to inform planning for the services needed to support different types of households and families, for example lone parents, a high concentration of children, or large families. This allows local authorities to assess levels of overcrowding or to identify areas with the potential for higher than average birth rates and an increased demand for health and other services.
This information is used to plan services and target resources, and allows public authorities to assess and tackle discrimination.
