Dataset2001 Census
Dataset DescriptionThe Census was designed to collect information on the resident population on Census Day - 29 April 2001. Enumerators delivered Census forms to every private household and every communal establishment in advance. Residents were asked to complete the forms with the information as correct on Census Day, and to post the completed forms back in a pre-addressed envelope. Where a form was not received through the post after a specified period, the enumerator visited the address in order to collect the form by hand. Arrangements made to enumerate special groups such as the Armed Forces and people sleeping rough. The Census was followed by the Census Coverage Survey (CCS) which took place between 24 May and 18 June 2001. This was an independent doorstep survey of a sample of a third of a million households, covering every local authority, which was used to adjust the Census counts for under-enumeration.
