The Key and Quick Statistics tables for the United Kingdom bring together data from the 2011 Censuses conducted in England and Wales, in Scotland, and in Northern Ireland, to provide UK harmonised data for areas throughout the United Kingdom.

New ONS website launched

The Office for National Statistics is the UK's largest independent producer of official statistics, covering the UK's economy, society and population, including the UK Census. It is the recognised UK National Statistical Institute.

The new complete redesigned ONS website has been launched, following extensive feedback from the July 2015 Beta version. The search and navigation tools have been significantly improved, as has the overall performance and general appearance. Nearly 150,000 redirects enable users to find existing content and much of the older content that has been moved to the National Archives

ONS is retaining a full time team to regularly maintain and enhance the website. More about development of the new website is available in the Digital Publishing Blog.

New 2011 Census releases

ONS has published three new releases of data from the 2011 Census.

All tables from these three releases, and from previous releases of Local and Detailed Characteristics are available on the Nomis website at:

2011 Census Flow Data

Origin-destination data (also known as flow data) is to be published by ONS. It will include the travel-to-work and migration patterns of individuals, cross-tabulated by variables of interest (for example occupation). New products for the 2011 Census will also provide the migration patterns of those living at a student address one year ago and provide information on individuals with second residences.

2011 Microdata Plans

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has shared plans to produce four microdata files from the 2011 Census. An updated ONS output prospectus which includes timescales for census microdata is forthcoming. The first edition of these files will be limited to England and Wales, but it is hoped that a second edition will be UK wide. This link provides details of all the proposed files as well as references to the consultation on Microdata.

New and easier ways of working with aggregate data and geographies from UK censuses

The aggregate outputs from UK censuses provide detailed, high quality information on a wide range of the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of people and households across the UK. They are, however, very large and complex datasets, which can make them difficult to understand and use effectively.

The UK Data Service will be holding an afternoon workshop at the University of Manchester on 20th March 2014 to address these issues. The workshop will focus on aggregate outputs from the UK 2011 Census and demonstrate how new methods of managing and providing access to them have made it much easier to work with them and exploit the valuable information they contain.

Census consultation: Future provision of population statistics

A three month public consultation on the census and future provision of population statistics in England and Wales is launched today (23rd Sept) by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). After each census, ONS reviews the future needs for information about the population and housing in England and Wales, and how these needs might be met.

The 2011 Census successfully provided population statistics that will be used for the next decade by planners, policy makers and researchers across the public and private sectors. Our population is changing rapidly, and the need to understand these changes will continue.

The Office for National Statistics' (ONS) Beyond 2011 programme is currently reviewing these needs, and how they might best be met in future. Improvements in technology and in government data sources offer opportunities to either modernise the existing census process, or to develop an alternative census method that reuses existing data already held within government.

Their research has resulted in two approaches for taking the census in future:
a census once a decade, like that conducted in 2011, but primarily online.
a census using existing government data and compulsory annual surveys.

Both approaches would provide annual statistics about the size of the population, nationally and for local authorities. A census using existing data and surveys would provide more statistics about the characteristics of the population every year. An online census would provide more detailed statistics once a decade.
The consultation document describes these approaches, their strengths and weaknesses and the different types of information they could provide.
No decision has yet been made, and ONS welcomes your views. Please respond using the online questionnaire.
