Does anybody know when the 2011 Census is due to be released? Someone said late 2012 - this seems a long time to me!

Cheers,

Rob

No that's about right Rob, bear in mind how much data there is to collate and analyse!

Hi Carol,



Thanks for clarifying, I think i'm just being impatient! It's just going to be a very powerful dataset when released!

I have looked on the ONS site found a link to the Census Release prospectus, some useful information.

Good find Rob, do you think the 2011 census will be a powerful and useful dataset?

I think the census data is probably the biggest release of open data in the last 5 years. It is so important for planning decisions, and using the 2001 census is hard to justify to clients - we have to say "we hope the trends remain the same" however with initial feedback of the latest census showing a spike in population of people in their 20's due to immigration - I think showing this change of accessibility numbers will be important. Some clients have indicated that they want us to back process previous outputs using this latest census data. So in short, yes I think this dataset is going to be extremely powerful.

Carol,

Thanks so much for this, when I had a look all I could see was a form to order it on CD. You're a star!
