Workshop: 2011 Census – aggregate data, University of Manchester 17 February 2015

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 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.

 

The workshop will include:

 

    an introduction to UK 2011 census aggregate outputs and geographies, and some common issues encountered in working with them

    demonstration of the InFuse interface and its key features in simplifying understanding of, and access to UK 2011 census aggregate outputs

    hands-on exercises using InFuse to find data from the UK 2011 census aggregate outputs and mapping it using GIS software

    opportunities for participants to ask the presenters questions about their own use of census aggregate data

 

Costs:

 

    £15 – UK registered students

    £30.00 – staff at UK academic institutions and research centres, ESRC-funded researchers, UK-registered charity and voluntary organisations, staff in public sector and Government

£75.00 – all other participants including commercial
