BSPS Annual Conference 10th-12th September 2012

Gill Harper and Les Mayhew attended this year’s BSPS annual conference at the University of Nottingham. Much attention was given to the ONS Census and Beyond 2011 project, with many presentations discussing using administrative data to estimate populations and data linkage. nkm and geocreate have been employing these methods for over 10 years and are interested to see ONS’s progress in exploring this option. Les Mayhew presented ‘Re-thinking households – using administrative data to count and classify households’, outlining our methods for using administrative data for household statistics.
