Scottish Census Outputs update

Yesterday the NRS published their updated 2011 Census Output Prospectus (pdf). Some key dates for your diary are:

1) 17 December 2012: First Census population estimates by 5-year age bands and sex for Scotland, total population estimate for each council area.

2) March 2013: Population estimates by five-year age bands and sex for Scotland and each council area. Household estimates for Scotland and each council area.

3) May 2013: Population estimates by single year of age and sex for Scotland and each council area.

4) Summer 2013: Key and Quick statistics tables; Scotland level population estimates by single year of age and sex, Census Profiles; Population and Household estimates by postcode and Geography products.

5) Autumn 2013: Local Characteristics tables.

6) Winter 2013: Detailed Characteristics tables.

(Draft table design are available from here)

It is expected that as Scottish data is made available detailed UK-wide Census statistics will be produced by ONS – timings of these are not currently available.

    Do you mean GB-wide Census statistics?
    Still waiting for NISRA to reveal their publication timetable.

    Hi David – latest we heard was that NISRA were ‘insync’ with ONS but we haven’t had a specific update from them. I expect ONS will wait until they have consistent (unrounded) data before producing UK tables; so this may have to wait until March next year and the unrounded NRS data.
