This brand new set of around 140 indicators can be found in the the Population theme, under a Census 2021 subtheme. This dataset combines the first release results for 2021 – available at local authority, region and country level for England and Wales – with the closest equivalent data selected from NOMIS for 2011, 2001 and 1991 to show change over time in the headline data. The population estimates are broken down by sex, broad age group and 5-year age groups.
Note that there may be some differences to the basis on how the values were generated. Note also that this first release data for 2021 gives figures rounded to the nearest 100 – later release will be unrounded and can be expected to show some differences to these figures.
For customers with a managed Data Observatory website, the data are displayed in the following places:
1) Population reports for top and lower tier local authorities (updated 7th July 2022)
2) Population Map Explorer (updated 4th July 2022)
3) Data Explorer (updated 4th July 2022)
We will add further data from Census 2021 to the National Data Service once these have been released. You can read the release plans from ONS for the data here.

Key Stage 4 Results for the academic year 20120/21 were released. This release has kept as the measure in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic as a separate dataset. For 2020/21, pupils were only assessed on the content they had been taught for each course. Schools were given flexibility to decide how to assess their pupils’ performance, for example, through mock exams, class tests, and non-exam assessment already completed. GCSE grades were then determined by teachers based on the range of evidence available and they are referred to as teacher-assessed grades, or TAGs. This is a different process to that of 2019/20 when pupils were awarded either a centre assessment grade (known as CAGs, based on what the school or college believed the pupil would most likely have achieved had exams gone ahead) or their calculated grade using a model developed by Ofqual – whichever was the higher of the two.
The changes to the way GCSE grades have been awarded over the last two years (with CAGs and TAGs replacing exams) mean 2020/21 pupil attainment data should not be directly compared to pupil attainment data from previous years for the purposes of measuring year on year changes in pupil performance.
