Some key Census findings for the wards and civil parishes of Merseyside were as follows: Residents in Merseyside were living at an average density of 21.4 people per hectare. Melrose in the district of Liverpool was the most densely populated ward (96.1 people per hectare), and Halewood East in Knowsley and Rainford in St. Helens were the least densely populated (both with 3.7 people per hectare).

Children made up 21.1% of the resident population of Merseyside. The wards with the highest and lowest proportions were Tower Hill in Knowsley (37.0%) and Duke's in Sefton (10.6%).
