2011 Census ‘Standard Theme Tables’


Mock table layouts for the 2011 Census Standard Theme Table outputs have been published by ONS. These include 19 tables  that represent detailed cross tabulations focused on a specific theme such as migration, ethnicity or dependant children. Table layouts are broadly consistent with their 2001 equivalents but there are also an additional 10 Theme tables proposed which focus on new topics such as ‘year of arrival’ and ‘national identity’ (published back in October).  A direct link to the downloadable zip file on the ONS website is here or the page containing all the proposed tables here.
