Census Figures

This section of the website summarises 2011 Census information for the Snowdonia National Park and its communities. Since 1801, every ten years the nation has set aside one day for the Census - a count of all people and households. The 2011 Census was conducted on the 27th of March 2011.

The 2011 Census provided a valuable source of information for the Snowdonia National Park Authority. It gave information about different areas within the National Park, its population, including the balance of young and old people, what jobs people do, and the type of housing they live in. It also provided an indication of how the area changed since the 2001 Census.

The National Park Authority is responsible for 'promoting opportunities for the public to understand the special qualities of the Park'; it is therefore important that we share the Census information with as many interested parties as possible.
