Census 2011 headline results released

  • July 20th, 2012  

    ONS released headline population and household estimates for local authorities in England and Wales on the 16th July 2012, as well as Quality Assurance methodology packs and papers. All ONS Census 2011 estimates for the 6 Olympic boroughs that geocreate and nkm produced comparative estimates for have been significantly increased compared to previous Mid Year Estimates. The equivalent nkm minimum population estimates for these 6 boroughs are comparable with the Census results and within their 95% confidence intervals yet were delivered mostly with 3 months of Census day and all published by November 2011.  ONS used administrative data and other evidence – nkm estimates in some cases – to adjust Census survey counts to get these final estimates, demonstrating the value of administrative data and that the survey methodology used by the Census has not captured total populations.
