New guide: Mapping 2011 Census Microdata using R

This guide aims to show the strength of using Census Microdata for a variety of research purposes, via a worked example taken from real-life research. In this guide we assume that you have some familiarity with microdata, mapping, and statistical software.

One of the main advantages of using Census Microdata is that users can derive bespoke variables unavailable in Census Tables. In the guide, we explore the provision of unpaid care within the household across the grouped Local Authorities in England and Wales. This level of detail about unpaid care is not available in Census Tables.
