Six Streets - a century of change
1911 & 2011 census
The results of the 2011 census are not available for 100 years so Six Streets History held its own voluntary census in April and then compared the results with those from 1911, the first census after the construction of our neighbourhood.
Our 2011 "census" received responses from 52% of local households - 429 people in 157 households.
The 1911 census was compulsory and covered 869 people in 213 houses.

The local census data show that some things have changed and some not so much:55% of local residents in 1911 were born in Derby or Derbyshire, compared to 46% of our 2011 sample. However, while a total of 17 residents in 1911 had been born abroad, our 52% sample in 2011 included 35 people born in 20 different foreign countries.
