Scottish Census Update

Yesterday NRS published an update to their Census Output Prospectus (.pdf), the key points were:

  • Release 1C will be published on Tuesday 23 July at 9.30 am and will include population estimates for single year of age by sex for Council Areas and Health Boards.
  • Release 1C will also include population/household estimates for Output Areas/postcodes along with digital boundaries and lookup tables
  • Release 2, scheduled for late summer 2013, will include Key and Quick Statistics tables and be released in phases (A to D) based on geography (similar to E&W). Council Areas/Health Boards will be first (2A), followed by Output Areas and Data Zones (2B).
  • NRS will not be following the ONS/NISRA plans to switch the order of Release 3 and 4 tables, with Local Characteristic tables (down to Output Area level) available as release 3 and Detailed Characteristics (down to Postcode Sectors) as Release 4.  Currently these are expected from late autumn and winter respectively.

More details are available from Census pages on the NRS website.
