This publication analyses the resident population of Communal Establishments; types of Communal Establishments include: hospitals, care homes, prisons, defence bases, boarding schools and student halls of residence. Analyses include the characteristics of residents in communal accommodation, including demographic and geographical analyses at national, regional and local levels.

Key points:
  • In 2011, Communal Establishment residents represented 1.7% (937,000) of all usual residents (56.1 million) in England and Wales. This was an increase from 1.6% (858,000) in 2001, and a numerical rise of 79,000 (9.2%) from 2001. Males increased by 15% (60,000) over this period, compared to 4.2% (19,000) for females.
  • In addition to Communal Establishment residents, there were 68,000 staff or owners (or family members or partners of staff or owners) living in Communal Establishments in 2011; this was 6.7% of the total communal population of 1.0 million in 2011.
  • Residents of educational establishments (including halls of residence, colleges and boarding schools) increased from 252,000 in 2001 to 382,000 in 2011, reflecting the expansion in higher education provision in the intervening decade. Care homes (with or without nursing and managed by local authority or another organisation) rose from 340,000 in 2001 to 352,000 in 2011.
  • Overall, 51% of Communal Establishment residents in 2011 were female; however males accounted for larger proportions in 9 of the 12 Communal Establishment types, including prisons (including probation/bail hostel, prisons, detention centres and other detention) (95%) and defence accommodation (90%). Females accounted for 68% of care home residents.
  • 42% (397,000) of residents in Communal Establishments in 2011 were aged 16 to 24; 33% (309,000) were aged 65 and over. These two age groups made up over three quarters of the Communal Establishment resident population.
  • In 2011, those aged 25 to 49 accounted for 62% (40,000) of the total prison resident population (including probation/bail hostel, prisons, detention centres or other detention). For defence establishments, 90% (39,000) of residents were aged 16 to 34.
  • Those of Chinese ethnicity were most likely to have lived in a Communal Establishment (11% or 41,000) in 2011, compared with those in other ethnic groups. Of those with Chinese ethnicity in Communal Establishments, 85% (35,000) were aged 16 to 24; most of these were likely to be students.
  • In 2011, the university cities of Cambridge and Oxford were the only two local authorities with Communal Establishment populations (including residents, staff or owners or family members or partners of staff or owners) exceeding 10% of their usually resident populations: Cambridge (13% or 17,000) and Oxford (12% or 19,000).
