Aggregate data provide area counts, usually of individuals or households with particular characteristics. An example might be the number of males, aged 20-24, who are divorced and live in Devon.
We hold aggregate data from censuses in England, Wales and Scotland held in 1971, 1981, 1991, 2001 and 2011, as well as data for Northern Ireland from censuses in 1991, 2001 and 2011. These data are aggregated to a range of geographical levels (e.g. counties and districts) from output areas which are the smallest spatial units.
