Women in Peterborough Census


It was only after 1800 that Peterborough became a significantly populated area.

The 1801 census recorded just 3,500 people here which more than doubled to 8,763 by the 1851 census.

It had rocketed to 30,873 by the time the 1901 census was taken.

The 2001 census showed there were 156,060 people in Peterborough 3,000 more than in 1991 – with roughly 4,000 more women than men.

The city has more people aged 30 to 34 and more children under the age of four than the national average.

The figures showed that 89.71% of the population (140,003) was white, compared to 92.58% ten years earlier.

There were 6,980 Pakistanis and 2,876 Indians in the city at the time.

What is the census?

A census is a count of the population. We have had one in the UK every ten years to find out more about who we are as a nation. We ask everyone to tell us a bit about themselves to help census users decide how best to plan and deliver the everyday services we all need – like housing, education, healthcare and transport.

The census will take place on 27 March 2011 and you will receive your questionnaire in the middle of March.

You are required by law to complete the census.
