Census 2011, 2021 & Beyond

last person joined: yesterday 

ONS plans to publish the first outputs from the 2011 Census (population estimates by age and sex for England and Wales and local authorities) in July 2012. Further details on these and the content and timetable for each of the census releases, as well as the availability of the commissioned table service and UK data, will be made available through an online census outputs prospectus that will be launched at the end of March.

ONS is developing new online tools and functionality to deliver an enhanced web site capability for organisations and individuals to access, exploit and explore ONS statistics more effectively. This will assist ONS to extend the reach of the 2011 Census outputs and other business outputs, to a wider audience and meet the open government transparency agenda.
This community will provide an opportunity for members to share views, experiences and good practice about the 2011 Census and dissemination of the outputs, together with the census data analysis that ONS will carry out. ONS is interested in understanding how you use the rich data produced by the census to inform your policy and service delivery and how we can meet your needs in disseminating the data. This will help to realise the benefits.

1.  2011 OA Population Weighted Centroids

Does anyone know when population-weighted centroids for the 2011 OAs will become available?  For 2001 OAs the relevant x y coordinates were included within the file, but this hasn't happened in the latest release.  Grateful for any information. Thanks.

Hi Alison.

The population weighted centroids are now available for OA / LSOA / MSOA on the ONS website at:

They are not integrated into the spatial files as in 2001 but can be matched to their relevant geogrpahies using the ONS geography codes.

Hope this helps.
