Census reports offer an enormous wealth of information on population characteristics ranging from place of birth to journeys to work.

The following images and notes offer very brief coverage of the contents of the Isle of Man Population Atlas.

Chapter 6: Population Characteristics

As the Island's population by over 8,000 between 2001 and 2011, the percentage of the population born in the Isle of Man was almost unchanged (it grew from 48% to 48.1%). The graphs below are waffle charts (or square pie charts). They show that the percentages of the Isle of Man's population born in the British Isles fell from 95.8% to 92.5% over this decade. The proportion born outside Europe increased from 2.9% to 4.6%. The population of the Isle of Man is becoming increasingly diverse.


'Born in the Isle of Man' may not be the same thing as being 'Manx'. The graph below shows how the percentage of the population born in the Isle of Man has changed since 1951.
