This programme supplies academic users (researchers, teachers and students)
with computer readable data from the UK Censuses of Population. The pages
are organized into four lists. The first list provides information
about the decennial census of population, the structure of the ESRC/JISC
programme that delivers census data and a set of summary tables that point
from a topic, geography and coverage requirement to particular data sets
and where to go to get access. The second list of pages gives
a short description of each of the main data sets and access information.
Use this list when you know what kind of data fits your needs. The third
list provides contact information for each of the organizations particpating
in the ESRC/JISC Census Programme. The fourth list contains information
on preparations for the next Census of Population, to be held on the 29th
April, 2001. The contents of these pages will be updated frequently over
the 1999-2002 period. Please contact the Programme Co-ordinator,
Phil Rees (email@example.com) if you want further information.
