2011 Census User Guide and Key Statistics interface

The 2011 Census User Guide brings together the information you need in order to understand and use statistics from the 2011 Census in England and Wales -

Newly available: information about variables and classifications, a comprehensive glossary, and a report about comparability over time. The guide also contains information about quality assurance, quality measures, comparability with other data sources, statistical disclosure control methods, coverage assessment and adjustment methods, and frequently asked questions.

The guide will expand over time as the releases become more detailed. In the meantime, let ONS know what you think.
