The ordering information below concerns only those products that are directly available from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Details on the cost of printed books and how to order them, and how to access data online free of charge are given in each product description.

Geographical products

Geographical boundary or lookup tables available to support Census 2001 datasets are available separately from ONS Geography.

Access and charges

There are no charges for the content of the standard Census results on the web or in other electronic media. This arrangement was made through the Census Access Project. But it may be necessary to recover material costs of supply where these become substantial. Customers will be notified of any charge in advance of supply.

Commissioned output

Enquiries about commissioning customised output may be made to Census Customer Services. Census users are asked to specify their exact requirements on the Commissioned Output order form. Charges will be made to recover staff and material costs, with a minimum charge of £150 +VAT. Consortia commissions and cost sharing are encouraged.

Scotland and Northern Ireland

These arrangements apply to the supply of output for England and Wales. Requests for output for Scotland and Northern Ireland should be made to the General Register Office Scotland (GROS) or to the Northern Ireland Statistical and Research Agency (NISRA).
