2011 Census special products - recent developments with origin destination data and microdata

24th September 2014 1pm, Room 1/G/8, Ladywell House, Edinburgh

Cecilia MacIntyre, Census Quality Assurance Statistician, National Records of Scotland

So far, the main Census outputs which have been published by NRS are in the form of standard tables. These are available through the Census Data Explorer which can be accessed through Scotland's Census website. Further output from the Census is based on origin-destination data (also known as flow data) output from which 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.A large amount of the origin-destination data will be at UK level. This talk will summarise the availability of this data, and give a few examples of how it can be used. Progress on the development of samples of anonymised records will be given including an illustration of a use of the Scottish teaching file.
