Census.ac.uk SARs 2011
Census.ac.uk Where we are Phase 1: SARs user meeting 12 November 2007 consultation survey with users/non-users in Phase 2: SARs user meeting 23 April 2009 – Business Case by Keith Dugmore on the demand for the 2011 Census. – We proposed the 5 files/first document outlining the principles underlying the strategy for 2011 census microdata presented to the ONS Phase 3: SARs user meeting 28 Jan 2011 Produced file specifications and made available online Consultation October 2010-Jan Summary of consultations now online Final consultation and feedback today!
Census.ac.uk Key Feature of the 2011 SARs Coverage Size Ethnicity and religion Geography Multivariate Household structure Comparability with other census products Easy access
Census.ac.uk Importance of features 2011
Census.ac.uk Issues around data access Per cent routine exceptional no work in instit- ution institut- ion safe setting analy- ses checked month long applic- ation travel away Microdata research facilities survey 2009 n(u) = 197 Microdata users only Limited detail in EUL files Institutions have appropriate facilities Biggest obstacle is long waits Travelling and having analyses checked also unpopular Past CAM VML use is low CAM users had mixed experiences
Census.ac.uk Recommendation of the Business Case Two popular files: for quick queries, education, and to attract new users Two professional files: offering more detail, but requiring more security Microdata Laboratory Facilities: offering considerable detail, but access only under strictest security con Production file: 15% household file – other files derived from mothership
Census.ac.uk Access for 2011 SAR data Legal protection for personal data Statistics Act establishes Approved Research Status High level spec assumed 3 levels of security ONS policy distinguishes 4 levels of data (impact level) –Public use (0) –Licensed (1) –Contracted(2) –Identified (3) Secure Data Service is key for Approved Research Files Balancing access against detail
Census.ac.uk Statistical Disclosure and microdata policy Level of SDC on the source data (protection via record swapping?) Extra protection from sampling, imputation (item and non-response), churning (with time),, variable coding, large households? SARs disclosure risk depends on other outputs (need to be considered in tandem) Outputs policy in each country Different levels of SDC depending on access Special licences phased out? Secure Data Service (SDS) Virtual Microdata Lab (VML)

Census.ac.uk Summary of the consultation on the variables for 2011 The specifications for the 5 files became available on the SARs web page in Sep 2010: –Expert consultation in Sep. and open consultation in Dec –Most comments made by invited expert users, but also some substantial comments by other users. –A total of 30 users commented on the variable specifications for the different files Types of comments and actions required by the SARs team: –Comments that required simple modifications- some of which have been adopted –Comments that needed further consultation and deliberation or depend on sdc trade-offs between access/detail/other variables (some of these may be discussed here) –Comments which are affected by circumstances beyond our control (e.g relating to the structure of the census questions)
