On the 28th June 2022, the Office for National Statistics released the first data from the 2021 Census.

This included data on the following, at local authority level, on Census Day 21st March 2021:

  • Total population, by 5 year age group and gender
  • Population density
  • Number of households

We’ve created a dedicated area of the observatory for this release HERE

The data can also be accessed on the Data Observatory via the updated Population Profile


Users trying to access crime and ASB data via the Community Safety profile or the Data Explorer will note that the figures for May 2022 are currently incorrect and much lower than expected.

This affects both the monthly count / rate and the 12 month rolling count / rate figures.

The reason for this issue is Humberside Police are currently implementing a new crime recording system so are unable to provide complete crime, outcome or stop and search data.

Data will be updated when this work is complete.
