Flow data

20/10/2014

Today ONS updated the timetable for the publication of the 2011 Census flow data. These datasets relate to:

  • Travel to Work (or study in Scotland)
  • Migration
  • Second Residences
  • Student migration

The next data to be published will be four Safeguarded migration tables including:

  • OA to OA/country flow (counts)
  • ward to ward flows by sex and age 

These are expected to be available later this month, with the Secure tables coming in November and safeguarded tables in December.

All Safeguarded tables will be available in SASPAC and users will be able to download the System Files from the UKDS website directly (having registered and accepted the T&Cs).

All Secure flow tables will only be accessible to approved researchers via the ONS secure VML (Virtual Microdata Laboratory). SASPAC will be available in the VML to allow our users to integrate these datatsets.

More details on the flow data, including table layouts, can be found on the ONS website and details of SASPAC’s specialist OD training courses here.
