Age- and Sex-Structure

The most consistently reported information in the census reports concerns the age- and sex-structure of district-level populations. These data appear in every census report since 1851 and always use 5-year age bands. They vary slightly in the oldest age-group covered and the additional detail sometimes provided for young people.
