After lobbying from SASPAC and local authority users, ONS have decided to produce single year of age (SYA) Census data broken down by sex for MSOA and merged ward geographies – currently the data is only available at Local Authority level.
In 2001 this data was provided as Standard Table ST001, however, the equivalent 2011 Census table (DC1104EW) was released on 30/8 but with merged age groupings (“0 to 4”, “5 to 7″…etc). No firm date for this data has been released as yet but it should be before the end of November – we’ll keep users up to date as and when we know more. This should help analysts create all those awkward and unusual age groupings!
Remember: next date for your diary is the 26 September, when we’re expecting to receive Migration (OA level) and Communal Establishment data (Ward/MSOA) for England & Wales.
