Census Transformation Programme

last person joined: 10 days ago 

The aim of the Census Transformation Programme is to make the best use of all available data in England and Wales to enhance the provision of population statistics. It will provide a predominately online census in 2021, it will seek to increase the use of administrative data to enhance population statistics, and it will form plans for the provision of population statistics after 2021.

The three major strands of concurrent work in the Census Transformation Programme are:
1. An online census
The programme will provide a predominantly online census of all households and communal establishments in England and Wales in 2021 with special care taken to support those who are unable to complete the census online. This will look at how we run the 2021 Census data collection operation and its coverage survey (including the address register, field force, online/paper data collection, public support and enumeration of communal establishments).
2. Administrative data
The programme will increase the use of administrative data and surveys in order to enhance the statistics from the 2021 Census and improve annual statistics between censuses. This will look at how we integrate census and administrative and survey data to provide and disseminate census outputs.
3. Plans beyond 2021
The programme will decide how we provide these statistics after the 2021 Census.

This community is for all posts relating to the census and the wider remit of the Census Transformation Programme.

1.  Key Statistics Table KS106EW

Hi folks

Can anybody clarify this?

Table KS106EW was based on the 2001 Table KS021. The original table had the number of households with one or more persons with limiting long-term ilness. The new table has been updated to take into account the wider definition of the LLTI/Disability and includes a breakdown of whether or not there are dependent children in the household, which is good. However it says one person with LLTI/Disability rather than one or more persons. What about households with more than one person with LLTI/Disability? Is this just a typo in the new layout?

The table in release 2 is correct and includes only one person with LLTI/Disability. Households with two or more people with LLTI/Disability will be in Release 3.

Does anyone know how comparator statistics from Census 2001 will be made available when KS/QS tables from 2011 are released in December and January? Will they be published alongside the new statistics?

Hi louise

ONS have no current plans to publish 'comparator statistics' as a standalone product. 2001/2011 comparability will be provided through reporting rather than tables, this via the statistical bulletins (for England and Wales), which focus on national and regional change, and the short stories, which will look at change in more detail down to the local authority level.
