The Census provides a snapshot of who lives in each household, their occupation, age, religion, ethnicity and whether they have any dependent children. The information is used by the Government and local councils to help plan for new housing, roads and schools.
The Census is held every 10 years. The last Census took place in 2001.
Census profiles for each ward are available.
