This document sets out the ONS Strategy for the dissemination of outputs from the 2011 Census. A separate consultation, currently underway, will define the content of the output dissemination systems. The ONS vision is to use the Web as the primary dissemination route:
“Users would access the data via an appropriate frontend web interface, which may be the ONS web frontend providing basic data explorer functionality or a more specialist frontend created by external partners such as SASPAC, which provides more advanced functionality for a particular user group”. (para.2, page 7).
SASPAC is already involved in helping ONS develop these systems and are looking forward to helping ONS achieve their key milestones (pages 9 to 11) over the coming year.
