Second address growth in Census
SLIGHTLY more than 1.57 million people living in England and Wales have a second address in another local authority, the Census 2011 has shown.
Cornwall has the greatest number. Almost 23,000 people had a second address in the region and used it for 30 days or more each year.
The overall number of people with second addresses is 1,570,224 and represents 2.8 per cent of the usual resident population in England and Wales.
More than three quarters said the extra address was for a purpose other than work or holiday.
They were mainly the home addresses of students, but also included the second addresses of children of separated parents.
