England and Wales Census 2021 - TS048 - Communal establishment management and type

This dataset provides Census 2021 estimates that classify communal establishment residents in England and Wales by the type of communal establishment they reside in. The estimates are as at Census Day, 21 March 2021.

Area type

Census 2021 statistics are published for a number of different geographies. These can be large, for example the whole of England, or small, for example an output area (OA), the lowest level of geography for which statistics are produced.

For higher levels of geography, more detailed statistics can be produced. When a lower level of geography is used, such as output areas (which have a minimum of 100 persons), the statistics produced have less detail. This is to protect the confidentiality of people and ensure that individuals or their characteristics cannot be identified.

Coverage

Census 2021 statistics are published for the whole of England and Wales. However, you can choose to filter areas by:

country - for example, Wales region - for example, London local authority - for example, Cornwall health area – for example, Clinical Commissioning Group statistical area - for example, MSOA or LSOA

Lower Tier Local Authorities

Lower tier local authorities provide a range of local services. In England there are 309 lower tier local authorities. These are made up of non-metropolitan districts (181), unitary authorities (59), metropolitan districts (36) and London boroughs (33, including City of London). In Wales there are 22 local authorities made up of 22 unitary authorities. Of these local authority types, only non-metropolitan districts are not additionally classified as upper tier local authorities.

Communal establishment management and type (26 categories)

A managed communal establishment is a place that provides managed full-time or part-time supervision of residential accommodation.

Examples include:

university halls of residence and boarding schools

care homes, hospitals, hospices and maternity units

hotels, guest houses, hostels and bed and breakfasts, all with residential accommodation for seven or more guests

prisons and other secure facilities

Single Living Accommodation (SLA) in military bases

staff accommodation

religious establishments

It does not include sheltered accommodation, serviced apartments, nurses’ accommodation, and houses rented to students by private landlords. These are households.

The ONS has made changes to housing definitions since the 2011 Census. Take care if you compare Census 2021 results for this topic with those from the 2011 Census.
