Getting Ready for Census 2011

In the Observatory we’re getting very involved with the Warwickshire preparations for the next Census of Population, to take place on Sunday March 27th 2011.

Results from the Census are used for a wide variety of purposes, including;

producing accurate statistics about the population;  enabling better profiling of small areas, e.g. localities;  enabling better targeting of resources to areas in most need;  calculating funding for LAs, PCTs, Police, etc. for the next 10 years;  used as denominators for Performance Indicators; and used for Equality & Diversity Monitoring.

We’ve set up a series of webpages on the Observatory website, and these will be added to with the latest Census news, as we get closer to Census count day.

The Observatory will be leading on the analysis of the Census results for Warwickshire as they become available over the following couple of years after March 2011.
