The 2012 British Society for Population Studies (BSPS) 2012 conference will be held at the University of Nottingham from 10-12 September. The current call for papers closes on 11 May.
In addition to the usual conference workstream presentations, meetings and networking opportunities, last year’s conference saw the introduction of a training session aimed at Local Authority demographers. Having been very well received, a similar course is planned for this year.
If you are not already a BSPS member you can join here for a small fee (that can be recouped by a discounted conference charge!).
ONS are running a 2011 Census analytical products workshop on 21 March 2012, 10-3 at Britannia Hotel, Portland Street, Manchester, M1 3LA. This will be the same as the previous workshop held in London back in October last year (the materials from which can be found here) and will deal with ONS’ current proposals for 2011 Census analytical products. If you are interested in attending email firstname.lastname@example.org, places are on a first come, first served basis.
An ONS news release today marks the beginning of a two year consultation exercise into suitable replacements for the Census. The ‘Beyond 2011‘ programme will examine options for producing detailed information about small areas and neighbourhoods that have traditionally been outputs from the census. The first stage, begins today, is a public consultation aimed at understanding user requirements for statistical data in the future.
Consultation documents can be found here (although the document was not available at the time of writing) and the programme team can be contacted by email. Users interested in this work may wish to attend an RSS ‘Looking Beyond 2011’ event being held on 21/10/11.
