DATA on sexual orientation and gender identity in Barnsley will become available in early January for the first time ever.
It will come as the latest set of results spawned from the 2021 census - the first to ever collect information about sexual orientation and gender identity - which has already found the Christian and ‘white British’ population to be in decline in England and Wales.
The full results will become available on January 6.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
