For Sobolev exponent $s>3/2$, it is shown that the data-to-solution map for the 2-component Camassa--Holm system is continuous from $H^s \times H^{s-1}(\mathbb {T})$ into $C([0,T];H^s \times H^{s-1}(\mathbb {T}))$ but not uniformly continuous. The proof of non-uniform dependence on the initial data is based on the method of approximate solutions, delicate commutator and multiplier estimates, and well-posedness results for the solution and its lifespan. Also, the solution map is Hölder continuous if the $H^s \times H^{s-1}(\mathbb {T})$ norm is replaced by an $H^r \times H^{r-1}(\mathbb {T})$ norm for $0 \leq r <s$.
