For the 2011 Census, please can you provide figures on how many entries were impudated (Or otherwise ignored/discarded) as a result of:
1) A relationship in a household apparently involving more than two people
2) An "impossible" combination of gender and marital status (E.g. two women who are married or a man and a woman in a civil partnership) If possible, please break these figures down by region.
You have asked for information on how many entries were imputed in the 2011 Census. However the information you are seeking concerns edits of existing data, rather than imputation of missing data.
No data was imputed with respect to a ‘same relationship’ in a household involving more than 2 people. However, where invalid data were encountered these were edited. Some 39,200 relationships were considered invalid because the respondent had more than one spouse and/or civil partner (i.e. had a legal status) or a spouse/civil partner and a partner. However, respondents who had more than one partner but was not married or in a civil partnership were not edited.
In England and Wales there were 50,400 instances of an invalid sex/marital status combination where edits were made. No regional breakdown has been produced.
