Census Outputs Consultation – now live

On 13 July 2021 the Office for National Statistics launched a public consultation, outlining our proposals for the content design and shape of the release plans for Census 2021 outputs.

The aim of this consultation is to obtain an updated view of your detailed needs for Census 2021 data and analysis, and to understand your priorities.

Your feedback will help us to make decisions on the final design of the Census 2021 outputs and analysis for England and Wales.

We would appreciate your views on this consultation by providing a response via https://consultations.ons.gov.uk/external-affairs/census-2021-outputs-consultation/ by 05 October 2021.

We'll also be hosting a webinar to promote the consultation and answer any questions you may have. The webinar will take place on 3 August 2021. Further details on the event can be found at: ons.gov.uk/economicevents

Long COVID in the UK: Prevalence, Impact and Emerging Insights

Webinar
21 July 2021
Measuring the emerging phenomenon of post-COVID-19 syndrome ('long COVID').
For some people, coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause symptoms that last weeks or months after the infection has gone. This is sometimes called post-COVID-19 syndrome or 'long COVID'. Long COVID is an emerging phenomenon that is not yet fully understood.
Hosted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the Statistics User Network (SUN), this seminar is an exciting opportunity to hear recent evidence on long COVID, including the latest ONS releases on the prevalence and impact of long COVID (published in July 2021).
Statistics User Network is a public facing engagement platform for stats users, stats producers and anyone who is interested in statistics. SUN is managed by the Office for National Statistics.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have teamed up with the ONS, NIESR and ESCoE to hold a conference bringing people across government, academia and private sector together to emphasise the benefits of data sharing beyond navigating a pandemic and capitalise on that learning.
