Scotland’s Census Output prospectus released

National Records for Scotland have released their 2011 Census Output Prospectus and set out a timetable for a phased release beginning with the first outputs in December 2012. The dataset release phases are similar in content to those in England & Wales but will follow six months behind those planned by ONS.

The timetable is:

Release Date Description Geography
First release December 2012 Age and sex, and resident households estimates for Scotland council areas, country
Second release Spring 2013 Key Statistics & Quick Statistics (equivalent to 2001 Key Stats and Univariate stats) country, council areas, postcode sector, OA, remaining geographies (health boards, parish…etc)
Third release Summer 2013 Local Characteristics & Local Themes (equivalent to 2001 Census Area Stats and Theme Tables) country, council areas, postcode sector, OA, remaining geographies (health boards, parish…etc)
Fourth release Autumn 2013 Detailed Characteristics and Themes (equivalent to 2001 Standard Tables and Standard Themes) country, council areas, postcode sector, remaining geographies (health boards, parish…etc)

The details (tables layouts) of the proposed outputs above are subject to disclosure control so my change, but final layouts will be published with each release. A range of statistical products on migration and travel to place of study or work are due to be published after the fourth release in late 2012

The prospectus is an active document and you can register for email notifications of updates by contacting census.consultation@gro-scotland.gsi.gov.uk
