With the second ONS Census data release on the horizon (beginning November), SASPAC is busy preparing the software to ensure its users can access these outputs as soon as they are available.
ONS announced in yesterday’s newsletter that the primary route to this data will be through the NeSS Neighbourhood Statistics website for online searches (similar to 2001) and also through bulk release in CSV form. The ONS Web Explorer tool/API is now planned to be ready in spring 2013.
|SASPAC has been a keen supporter and partner to ONS in the API development and will take advantage of these tools when they come online. But, SASPAC is also pleased that the data will come out in bulk form so that users can still rely on SASPAC to provide them with convenient access to the expected Key and Quick Statistics data tables for all the geographies included in the second Census release (OAs, SOAs, LA/UA, wards).|
