Census 2011 Analysis

This story analyses the characteristics of those living alone within the household population aged 16 and over, and the broader usually resident population, using data from the 2011 Census. Characteristics analysed include age and sex, housing tenure, qualifications and ethnicity. Geographical variations in those living alone are also highlighted.

Key Points
  • The proportion of the total usually resident population of all ages living alone in England and Wales in 2011 (13%) was similar to the overall proportion living alone within the European Economic Area (EEA) (14%).
  • Of the household population aged 16 and over in England and Wales in 2011, 16% (7.1 million) were living alone.
  • The proportion living alone increased gradually with age: from less than 4% for ages 16 to 24, to 17% for those aged 50 to 64 and 59% for those aged 85 and over.
  • 26% of the household population aged 16 and over with no qualifications were living alone in 2011; 14% of those with a degree level or above qualification were living alone.
  • More than half (54%) of those living alone owned their own home (including 36% who owned outright).
  • The majority (72%) of those living alone were living in properties with two or more bedrooms.
  • Of the total usually resident population aged 16 and over, Black/African/Caribbean/Black British ethnic groups had the highest levels living alone in 2011 (17%), while Asian/Asian British ethnic groups were the least likely to live alone (7%).
