The biggest changes have been in Inner East London.
Tower Hamlets - where Canary Wharf has boomed, 1st on every indicator, highest population change at 28.8%, highest employment change at 50% and highest population density with 324 residents per hectare.
The pressures for growth in London are so high that there is little surburban decline in population terms, although employment has been declining significantly in outer London.
The census data has also been used to show changes in where people are working around London. The brighter the colour, the greater the change of employment density.
A new series of maps have been published showing the dramatic changes in London's population density. The maps have been compiled using census data from 2001 and 2011. The brighter the colour, the greater the change.

London was one of only three places in the country to see a rise in unemployment in the last three months.
The Office for National Statistics revealed that an extra five thousand people are jobless in the capital since the Olympics.
And as Paul Brand reports, for many Londoners out of work, the reality is a very bleak Christmas.
London is the only part of the country to experience a drop in long-term youth unemployment over the last two years, according to a report by the Trades Union Congress.
The rest of England has seen an increase of almost 25 percent since the coalition government came to power in 2010.
Iain Duncan Smith MP, the Work and Pensions Minister, says that the boost in employment reported today is not down to the Olympics, but that the Games will have an impact in the future.
