Next Census release – 28 June 2013

Today ONS released the date for the next phase of 2011 Census data, these datasets are expected to include:

  • Detailed Characteristic tables related to Housing for Local Authorities and above in E&W
  • Key Statistics for 2011 Built Up Areas in E&W
  • Headcounts and Household Estimates  for Postcodes in E&W

and will be released on 28 June 2013.

We’re waiting to receive updated table layouts for the expected Detailed Characteristics tables but the most recent draft layouts included 31 tables and covered topics such as: occupancy rating, ethnicity, religion, central heating, tenure, bedrooms, household composition, household size and communal establishments. We’ll keep users up to date as soon as we hear more.

The publication of Postcode headcount data will provide users with the ability to use SASPAC to create improved ward (and other small geography) population estimates – previously discussed in our blog. This dataset comprises details of the number of males, females and occupied households and will provide a very accurate method of redistributing the population to other boundaries.
