Book now for workshop on understanding and accessing 2011 Census aggregate data
Article dated: 4 June 2013
Bookings are now open for a free, one-day workshop on 4 July 2013, organised by UK Data Service Census Support, which will provide an introduction to the aggregate data outputs from the 2011 UK Census.
UK censuses provide an unparalleled resource of high quality information about a wide range of current and historical demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the population across the UK.
As well as the introduction to the aggregate data outputs, the workshop will include hands-on sessions giving an opportunity to explore the InFuse interface. InFuse is designed to simplify access to and understanding of these data.
The workshop will be of interest to existing and potential academic users of census outputs.
Sessions will cover:
Understanding the 2011 Census
Using InFuse for topic-based information searches
No previous experience of using census data will be assumed.
This workshop is free but as places are limited booking is essential.
