All the data collected from Chorleywood residents from the 2021 census has now been released, including information on sexuality, housing, gender identity and education.

In terms of sexuality, 91.24 per cent of the village described themselves with heterosexual, whilst a small number of 0.75 per cent described themselves as gay/lesbian, whilst another 0.75% identified as bisexual.

The number of transgender residents was even lower, with a mere 0.31 per cent stating they identified as having a different gender than the one they were assigned at birth, compared to 95.39 per cent of residents who identified as cisgender.

More than half (56.8 per cent) of residents stated that their highest education qualification was an undergraduate degree or above, with only a small number of 7.1 per cent stating they had no qualifications whatsoever.

A slim majority of residents also answered that they owned their house outright (42.1 per cent), whilst a sizeable number of people also stated that they owned a home with a mortgage or a loan (37.2 per cent) or privately rented their accommodation from a landlord or a letting agency (11.6 per cent).
