*The baseline figures are the % of the national population. The dataset shows the population by five-year age group. For the 2011 Census, a usual resident of the UK is anyone who, on census day 2011, was in the UK and had stayed or intended to stay in the UK for a period of 12 months or more, or had a permanent UK address and was outside the UK and intended to be outside the UK for less than 12 months. The age of a person is derived from their date of birth. It is their age in years on their last birthday up to and including census day 2011.
