Passports held – Results for ‘Passports held’ classify a person according the passport or passports that they held at the time of the 2011 Census. People where asked to indicate whether they held no passport, a United Kingdom passport, an Irish passport, or a passport from another country, and write in the name of the other country if applicable. If more than one of the options were applicable people were asked to indicate all that applied. In results that classify people by passports held, those who hold a United Kingdom or Irish passport, and any other type of passport, will appear in each applicable category. The categories ‘EU countries’ and ‘non-EU countries’ relate to the European Union (EU) as at March 2011.
Usual resident – The main population base for outputs from the 2011 Census is the usual resident population as at census day 27 March 2011. Although the population base for enumeration included non-UK short-term residents, this population is analysed separately and is not included in the main outputs from the 2011 Census. All outputs, unless specified, are produced using only usual residents of the UK. For 2011 Census purposes, a usual resident of the UK is anyone who, on census day, 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.
