Principal passport held by Year of arrival in the UK (England and Wales) 2011

Dataset population: Persons

Principal passport held

Results for 'Passports held' classify a person according to the passport or passports they held at the time of the 2011 Census. People were asked to indicate whether they held no passport, a United Kingdom passport, an Irish passport or a passport from another country, and write in the name of the other country if applicable. If more than one of the options were applicable, people were asked to indicate all that applied.

In results that classify people by passports held, those who hold a United Kingdom or Irish passport, and any other type of passport, will appear in each applicable category.

The categories 'EU countries' and 'non-EU countries' relate to the European Union (EU) as at March 2011.

This topic counts each person only once, therefore people only appear in one category even if they hold more than one passport. In cases where a person recorded having more than one passport, they were categorised in the following priority order:

  1. UK passport
  2. Irish passport
  3. Other passport

Year of arrival in the UK

The year of arrival in the UK is derived from the date that a person last arrived to live in the UK. Short visits away from the UK are not counted in determining the date that a person last arrived.

Year of arrival is only applicable to usual residents who were not born in the UK. It does not include usual residents born in the UK who have emigrated and since returned; these are recorded in the category 'Born in the UK'.
