EP10: The National CENSUS 100 Years Apart

Tony Robinson’s Cunningcast

Tony is a self-confessed Census nerd and today he’s having a nose around the newly released data from the 1921 census, alongside data from the 2021 census, to reflect on the National Census 100 years apart: what it says about us and why it matters.
