Welcome to Historic Stats!

A website for maps and statistical analysis of historical statistics in Ireland and Wales.



Ireland has a breath of census data post 1821 that provide statistical information on population statistics of the entire island. The Ireland section will be updated and work is still ongoing to visualise the statistics in Ireland. Offical statistics are used to create visualisations while some experimental statistics are carried out where official is not available, such as the Forenames of Ireland Series and the Surnames of Ireland Series.



Like Ireland, Wales has had cenuses carried out on the population which provide a statistical breakdown of the population of Wales at the time. This section provides (along with upcoming releases) modern visual and statistical analysis of Wales' past using data from the historic censuses. More analysis will be updated periodically. Currently, work is underway to provide the visualisations and statistics of Wales at the time.
