2011 Census quality reporting Post-2001, ONS LS-based adjustment to population estimates 2011 Census, report to Census during processing Undercount who didnt appear in the census, broken down by: age sex location marital status ethnicity, etc. Overcount who appeared more than once in the census, and why within household multiples, e.g. internet and paper response students at home and term-time addresses people at home and communal establishment movers enumerated at old and new addresses children of separated parents at both addresses, etc.
Questions in the 2011 Census New questions in 2011: second residence number of bedrooms civil partnerships Questions being asked for the second time in 2011: caring responsibilities self-rated health religion

Future direction for the ONS LS Short to medium term Fully exploit the new LS database Expand LS user base, particularly within Government Update annually with a fifth decade of life events data Closer integration with sister studies in Scotland and Northern Ireland Long term What will we do in 2021?
