2 Census 2011 Output Content and User Consultation Joe Traynor

3 Aims Describe the relationships between today’s individual presentations Explain the consultation process in relation to particular topics and their inter-dependencies

4 Overview of Consultation Process This is the start of the consultation on outputs Census 2011 outputs –Taking on board lessons learned and suggestions from 2001 –Incorporating methodological and technological innovation

5 Overview of Consultation Process contd Census 2011 outputs contd –Consultation on key decisions Topics to be discussed with users Timeframe for discussion Process

13 Consultation by Topic Geography Current Position OA stability OA alignment with Scotland Challenge OA re-design of statistical zones: maintain stability while addressing design problems with worst-performing OAs Consultation Topic Stability vs re-design Timeframe Nov 2009 – March 2010 Process Users will be invited to identify worst- performing OAs via website ONS Geography to evaluate the submissions and assess performance against need for stability

14 Consultation by Topic contd Dissemination Current Position Ability to produce outputs for a range of population bases Challenge Defining different possible population bases and the outputs that relate to them e.g. second residency base Consultation Topic Requirement for multiple population bases Timeframe Spring 2010 Process ONS to define baseline set of requirements Users invited to comment via website

15 Disclosure Control and Geography Current Position Misalignment of OAs with administrative boundaries Challenge Two exact fit geographies desired (OA and Ward) Comparability with 2001 vs flexibility Consultation Topic Exact fit or best fit to OA Timeframe During next six months Process Report on whether record-swapping can enable an exact fit solution to be delivered via website Consultation by Topic contd

16 Disclosure Control and Dissemination Current Position Assume (for now) the same level of detail will be available as in 2001 – without additivity or consistency problems Challenge Ensure user requirements are met, while providing sufficient disclosure control Consultation Topic Users’ requirements Timeframe Nov / Dec 2009 – Spring 2010 Process Direct consultation Iterative process Evaluation & prioritisation Further details in next presentation Consultation by Topic contd

17 Disclosure Control, Geography and Dissemination Current Position Potential to release standard tables and/or hypercube access to data Challenge Balancing technology against utility, detail and flexibility for the delivery of 2011 census data Consultation Topic Users’ requirements & preferences Timeframe Internal research is ongoing External consultation to begin by end of 2009 Process Offer users a variety of choices, based on possible delivery channels Consult via website with examples of range of products

18 Conclusions 1.Tables will be internally additive 2.Inter-table consistency 3.More information will be available comparability is a high priority i.Stable geography (bearing in mind worst cases of unfit statistical zones) ii.Awareness, analysis and mitigation of the impact of question and response-category changes

19 Census 2011 Future consultation – statistical output specification

20 Introduction Define statistical outputs of the 2011 census: –2001 paper-based iterative approach –2011 web-based iterative approach –More detailed definitions

21 Definition of output content 1.Clearly define the specification for tabular outputs that will be produced directly or via hypercubes 2.Specification will define relationships between 2001 and Define the geography at which the outputs will be produced 4.Specification independent of output media (hypercubes and/or tabular outputs) 5.Allow for easy amendment/redefinition of specification in line with user needs

22 Issues relating to defining output content Three central issues: 1.Geographical base undecided (one base or two) 2.Dissemination media are not confirmed 3.Disclosure control

23 Issues relating to Geography Decision on one geographical base or two will not affect the definition of output content Tables will be defined on both OA and administrative geographies irrespective of whether an exact or best fit solution is applied If differencing is an issue then a best fit solution will be applied and no tables on an exact fit will be produced

24 Issues relating to Dissemination Media The development of the documentation used to consult users on the specification of outputs will allow for the production of either hypercubes or tables

25 Timetable consultation on tabular outputs DATEDevelopment of output specifications 2009July/August ONS develop a set of baseline set of specifications on a sub set of 2001 tablesComplete 2009August/September ONS develop comprehensive set of specifications using topic group leads Nearing completion 2009October COWG review specifications arrive at agreed baseline set of definitionsInitiated 2009OctoberOutput events on all topics affecting outputsInitiated 2009November/DecemberConsult all users using the baseline definitions- 2010January/FebruaryRefine definitions- 2010March 2nd round of consultations using redefined set of specifications- 2010AprilRefine specifications- 2010May Define agreed set of specifications to be produced-
