Historical Censuses Collections (CHCC)

Two types of demographic data are available from the CHCC collection.
Individual Level Demographic Data

Individual-level demographic data is available from the transcribed manuscripts of the complete census enumerators' books of the 1881 census for England and Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, accounting for some 26 million individuals. These data, originally transcribed and published by the Genealogical Society of Utah (and available to the non-HE/FE community from Church of Latter Day Saints) have been enriched, enhanced and geographically standardised. These data provide information about the name, address, relationship to the head of household, marital status, age, occupation, birthplace and disabilities of millions of individuals, as well as a large group of derived demographic variables.

These data now form part of the Integrated Census Microdata collection and are available via the ICeM site.
Aggregate Level Demographic Data

Also available for download are three major collections of aggregate-level demographic data - the Great Britain Historical Database, the Database of Irish Historical Statistics and the Database of Welsh Historical Statistics. These aggregate-level demographic statistics cover a wide range of tables from the published census reports.

Due to technical issues, these data are no longer available online. Please contact us for further information.
