Lelant in the 2011 census

2013 Maxwell Adams

Version 20 October 2013

There are no individual names in the published census data

Please read the introductory remarks on the article on the 2001 census in Lelant which apply to this 2011 article too.


There are no census statistics specifically for Lelant but three census output areas reasonably represent the village. Output areas are the smallest census areas available.

The three areas were coded UFFY0001, UFFY0007, and UFYY0009 in the 2001 census. The pages on the Neighbourhood Statistics website

E00095901, broadly the middle and west of Lelant; E00095907, broadly the south of Lelant; E00095909, broadly the north of Lelant

There are maps there that show the part of Lelant covered by the output area.

I have amalgamated information from all three output areas to give a snapshot of Lelant at the census on 27 March 2011.
