This section of the website summarises 2001 Census information for the Snowdonia National Park and its communities.
Since 1801, every ten years the nation has set aside one day for the Census - a count of all people and households. The most recent Census was conducted on Sunday 29th April 2001. For the first time, a set of census statistics relating specifically to the resident population of the Snowdonia National Park is now available.
The 2001 Census provides a valuable source of information for the Snowdonia National Park Authority. It gives information about different areas within the National Park, its population, including the balance of young and old people, what jobs people do, and the type of housing they live in. It also provides an indication of how the area is changing over time.
The National Park Authority is responsible for 'promoting opportunities for the public to understand the special qualities of the Park'; it is therefore important that we share the Census information with as many interested parties as possible.
A selection of 2001 Census figures are presented for the National Park area and for those Community Council areas which are totally or partly within the Park. The data can be accessed from the links on the left hand side of this page. You can also view thematic maps showing key data for the National Park area. If you want to access additional sources of data about your local area, see the external links section on the left hand side of this page.
