Research and Statistics
The Research and Statistics unit collects, analyses, and publishes data relating to a wide range of aspects of the Church of England.
We use data from the national census and other government statistics to provide parish-level information for the Church of England's 12,500 parishes.
We provide an interactive Church of England parish map, with summary deprivation and census statistics mapped onto parish boundaries. The map also shows parish, benefice, deanery, archdeaconry, diocese, and lower super output area (LSOA) boundaries, and school locations.
(Map updated January 2020. The planned update in July 2020 was unable to take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic; next planned update 2021)

A user guide for working with the interactive parish map is available. Parish deprivation data can be explored in more detail in the Church Urban Fund's poverty lookup tool.
