The first results from the 2011 UK Census were released on 16th July, how well prepared are you to take onboard the new data and obtain value from it? This seminar has been specially designed to prepare businesses, with a programme of briefing presentations by experts in each aspect of census dissemination and application.
This seminar has been designed for both new Census users and for those who have previously used Census results, in both research and commercial sectors.
The seminar will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday 19th September at the Royal Statistical Society, and registration will commence at 13.30 hrs.
We have recruited an excellent line-up of speakers:
Keith Dugmore, Demographic Decisions, will talk about the requirements of commercial users and whether the Census Offices plan to meet those needs.
Emma White, ONS, will brief us on progress to date, plans for further releases of Census output and ways to access the results.
Corrine Moy, GfK NOP, will discuss opportunities for using Census data in market research.
Mike Batty, UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, will present on the opportunities for applying web visualization to Census results.
This promises to be a fascinating and informative afternoon, designed to update delegates on what to expect from the 2011 UK Census, and how to become best placed to obtain and benefit from the results.
The event will be chaired by Barry Leventhal of BarryAnalytics, who also chairs the MRS Census & Geodemographics Group.

Census data can already be downloaded into simple mapping packages that make it easy to display
Interfaces such as the Census Profiler, Maptube, and crowdsourcing systems such as Survey Mapper build on these
There is strong momentum to develop systems on hand held devices which further simplify and summarise data
