Age by Ability to speak Welsh by National identity (Wales) 2011

Dataset population: Persons aged 3 and over

Ability to speak Welsh
A person is classified as being able to read Welsh if they tick 'Read Welsh', though they may also tick one or more of the following:

  • Understand spoken Welsh
  • Speak Welsh
  • Write Welsh

In results that classify people by Welsh language skills, a person may appear in more than one category depending on which combination of skills they have.
Applicable to Wales only.

Age
Age is derived from the date of birth question and is a person's age at their last birthday, at 27 March 2011. Dates of birth that imply an age over 115 are treated as invalid and the person's age is imputed. Infants less than one year old are classified as 0 years of age.

National identity
A person's national identity is a self-determined assessment of their own identity with respect to the country or countries with which they feel an affiliation. This assessment of identity is not dependent on legal nationality or ethnic group.

The national identity question included six tick box responses:

  • English
  • Welsh
  • Scottish
  • Northern Irish
  • British
  • Other

Where a person ticked 'Other' they were asked to write in the name of the country. People were asked to tick all options that they felt applied to them. This means that in results relating to national identity people may be classified with a single national identity or a combination of identities.
