Consultation Reports

Beyond 2011 User Requirements Consultation Report

This document provides the results of the first Beyond 2011 public consultation which ran from October 2011 to January 2012. A total of 266 organisations and individuals provided responses to the consultation and 207 people attended the supporting workshops.

All sectors of users were represented in the results, although the highest response was from local authorities and genealogists or family historians (17%). Although we were aware of the genealogical interest in the census this consultation was primarily designed to capture the views of ‘statistical’ users. This is discussed in the consultation evaluation at Annex D.

The consultation focused on two broad areas:

  • the current and future requirements for population and socio-demographic statistics on different topics; and,

  • the trade-off between accuracy, geography and the frequency at which the statistics are produced.
