Dataset population: Workplace population aged 16 to 74 (excluding students) in employment in the area the week before the census


Age is derived from the date of birth question and is a person's age at their last birthday, at 27 March 2011. Dates of birth that imply an age over 115 are treated as invalid and the person's age is imputed. Infants less than one year old are classified as 0 years of age.

Northern Ireland (Workplace Population)

The following population groups are excluded from the workplace population of an area:

  • Those not working the week before 27 March 2011
  • Those living in Northern Ireland but working in England, Wales, Scotland, outside the UK or on offshore installations
  • Those with a place of work in Northern Ireland but who are not usually resident in Northern Ireland
