Who are we? Making sense of the 2021 census

October 3, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST

A black and white photo of a street of houses.

There is a wealth of data available from the 2021 census, a decadal poll of who we are, what we do and where we live.

This session will be a chance to dig into some of this data and share insights about what the census does and doesn’t contain. Bring a device if you want to get your hands dirty, if not you can team up with others or listen to the expert advice on hand.

Speakers include:

  • Shan Wilkinson, Bolton Council
  • Paul Holme, Manchester City Council
  • Mike Doocey, Greater Manchester Combined Authority
