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; next planned update: July 2020)
