Webinar: Key data - Census
Census data from 1971-2011 provides a unique source of robust population data, particularly for small areas and often-overlooked groups, such as those living in establishments.This webinar is intended as an introduction to the Census data available from the UK Data Service, for anyone who is interested in using them in research or teaching.
The UK Data Service provides access to Census data in a range of formats including counts about characteristics of people and households in areas (aggregate data), data about commuter and migration movements between areas (flow data), anonymised samples of records for flexible use (microdata) as well the boundary data necessary to map them. Most of these data can be accessed without registration or after a short registration. The webinar will briefly describe each of the sources of census data. Tools for accessing key data will be also be briefly demonstrated.
The webinar will consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by 20 minutes for questions.
Recordings of UK Data Service webinars are made available on our YouTube channel and, together with the slides, on our past events pages soon after the webinar has taken place.
