Data Packs Clients get Census Data within hours of release

Data Packs Clients received the first release of Census 2011 data today, on the day it was released . The Data Packs Census First Release provides users with Census Tables giving the latest data, derived rates, benchmarks to 2001 Census Data and detailed metadata. Users received this release as part of a new 2011 Census theme, to help locate the census datasets and have incorporated them into the theme, block structure.

Census Tables included:

  • Table H01 2011 Census: Number of households with at least one usual resident, local authorities in England and Wales

  • Metadata for each of the indicators incorporating ONS methodology and definitions
  • Two new widgets to incorporate into profile reports:
