Visit the website of the Office for National Statistics: http://census.gov.uk/census-2021-results and click on the section heading ‘Census 2021 interactive content’. From the list of contents, select ‘Census maps’. Scroll down the page that opens and in the blue shading click ‘Use our interactive map’, which opens in a new tab.
On the left there are various topic categories of census data. Select ‘Population’ and from the list of options that are revealed click ‘Age’. The choropleth map of England and Wales that is revealed shows Local Authority Districts (LADs) and their percentage of population under the age of 15 (children). Hovering your pointer over the map reveals the specific percentage for each LAD. Change the age category on the left to ‘Aged 65 years and over’ and notice the map pattern change.
