Statistics on the population of Great Britain present in communal establishments are published today (16 December) both as a summary in one of a series of 1991 Census Monitors and in a detailed Census report.

Communal establishments included are those providing common catering facilities to people living in them, and encompass those in the medical and care sector; places of detention, defence and education; and other groups such as hotels, hostels and civilian ships. These statistics are based on answers given in the Census taken in April 1991.

Some key findings for Great Britain are: Just over one and a half million people, nearly 3% of the population, were enumerated in communal establishments on Census night, some 166 thousand more than in 1981. There were 56 thousand communal establishments, including 19.6 thousand hotels and boarding houses, 11.6 thousand residential homes, 5.9 thousand nursing homes, and 5.2 thousand local authority homes.
