Work and Qualifications  

Please note: data from the 2011 Census started to become available in 2012, and further tables of data are being published throughout 2013.

Analysis of local data at 2011 is in progress, commencing with Key Statistics and Quick Statistics at ward and parish level.
2011 data relating to Hampshire and its constituent parts at various geographical levels can be accessed at:
http://www3.hants.gov.uk/factsandfigures/population-statistics/census_pages/census_2011.htm

2001 Census data is retained here to facilitate comparison with 2011 data.
 
Information from the 2001 Census is provided as a parish profile of those people aged 16-74, whether they are economically active or inactive, employed or unemployed and the average number of hours they work.  This information is provided for all people aged 16-74, and also for males and females separately.

Data is also provided on the number of people employed according to their socio-economic classification.  There is also data on the numbers of people aged between 16 and 74 with or without qualifications, and the numbers of people with qualifications at a certain level.  Finally, there is data on method of travel to work and average distance travelled to work.    

There are six tables giving data on Work and Qualifications.  These tables are listed as "ECONOMIC ACTIVITY", "ECONOMIC ACTIVITY - FEMALES", "ECONOMIC ACTIVITY - MALES", "QUALIFICATIONS", "SOCIO-ECONOMIC CLASSIFICATION", and "TRAVEL TO WORK".
