When will the 2021 UK Census Data be Released?

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is not scheduled to release their data until 2023, so the current annual release of Maptitude (Maptitude 2023) does not contain that data. This data will eventually be available with Maptitude 2023, which has been released. You can read more about the ONS timeline here: https://www.ons.gov.uk/census/censustransformationprogramme/census2021milestones

Northern Ireland is on the same schedule as England and Wales, so the first results for Census 2021 statistics are scheduled for release on May 24th 2022. Other main Census 2021 statistics will be released in stages up to summer 2023: https://www.nisra.gov.uk/statistics/2021-census/outputs-prospectus/release-plans
