SASPAC data releases


The SASPAC team have recently added the following datasets to our website:

  • 2011 Census Key/Quick Statistics and Commissioned tables for Clincial Commissioning Groups (CCG) in England. A link to the data download page is here or a direct link to download the Health System files is here (3MB .zip). The CCG geography has been created from a Lower Super Output Areas to CCG lookup available from the ONS Geoportal.
  • 2011 Census Commissioned Table CT0050: Method of Travel to Work (alternative) for Output Areas and above (supersedes CT0015 and 45 previously released for ward/LAs) has been added to the Commissioned tables System files. This table is comparable with data from the 2001 Census (UV039), unlike the previously published QS701EW
  • 2011 Census Administrative Ward boundary files in Mapshore (BDY),MapInfo (TAB) and ESRI (SHP) formats are now available to download.

Please contact the helpdesk if you have any issues downloading these files.

2011 Census Travel to Work commissioned table


The GLA have commissioned a Method of Travel to Work table (CT0045)  for ward, LA/UA, counties and regions in E&W which is comparable with the 2001 table. This is identical to table CT0015 ONS previously released to support their own analysis but was only released down to district level.

This new table provides Census estimates that are consistent with the classifications used in 2001 (table KS015), e.g. if a person indicates their place of work is at their home address but said that they travel to work by driving a car or van, they will appear in the category “Work mainly at or from home”, as was the case in 2001. In contrast, the 2011 table QS701EW uses a person’s method of travel to work to classify them, even if they have ticked the “Work mainly at or from home” category.

(We have requested ONS add geography codes to this file as it currently only contains names).
