Luton information observatory (research and statistics)

2021 census

Data from last year's census will be available here in early summer 2022.

Our information observatory provides statistics, mapping and research reports on information, such as the type of people who currently live here and projected population trends, economy, deprivation levels and what the census tells us about Luton.

The ‘This is Luton’ report looks at the demography and economy of Luton. It is the definitive source of data and information on these matters for Luton.

In addition, an overview of health and social care in Luton has been published, as part of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). Readers are advised to consult both of these high level reports in order to gain a full picture of life and health in Luton.
