The future of small area population statistics

21 October 2013

Between September - December 2013, the UK Office for National Statistics consulted on the census and the future provision of population statistics in England and Wales. The options under consideration had profound implications for the future availability of data on population counts and characteristics for small areas (at and below the local authority level).

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), RGS-IBG Population Geography Research Group (PopGRG), Demographics User Group and British Society for Population Studies held this meeting to understand more fully the key issues and implications to promote informed responses to the consultation.
