Census Data for the Deanery as at 2011
Much pastoral planning occurs at deanery level. This data provides demographics relevant to each deanery. It also allows individual parishes to compare themselves with their immediate neighbours and identify commonalities and notable differences. These are important for collaborative pastoral planning. Digital maps are a new and useful feature.
Parishes Data - Census 2011
Provides a list of parishes and a link to their Census data for 2006. Parish level data is the most commonly used for pastoral planning. Comparisons with 2001, 1996 (and, where available, 1991) are provided so that change trends can be easily identified.
