Rutland Census 2011

The Performance and Application Team at Rutland County Council has been working on behalf of the Corporate Equality and Diversity Group to produce a document that analyses the information and statistics published from the 2011 census.   

The recent census has allowed us to reflect on the current makeup of the population in Rutland as well as looking at the regional and national picture. The document makes comparisons against the 2011 census and the 2001 census; it is broken down into three main areas:   

  • Caring, Earning and Qualification
  • Quality of Life
  • Diversity and Migration
