The Office of Population Censuses and Surveys has published the key census results for council areas across Britain. Among the highlights, Christchurch was found to have the highest proportion of pensioners (35%), double the national average.

The two areas with the highest proportion of residents with a limiting long term illness were both in south Wales: 26% in Rhondda and 23% in Port Talbot. Wokingham's total of 7% was the lowest in Britain.

Across Britain 5.5% of the population belonged to an ethnic group other than white. Brent had the highest non white population (45%), closely followed by Newham (42%). Around 27% of all households consisted of one person living alone, rising to 48% in Kensington and Chelsea.

Just over half the households in Surrey Heath had two or more cars, compared with 6.5% in Glasgow.

The figures are contained in the OPCS bulletin Population Trends No 73, available from HMSO, price £8.15.
