Planning to use the 2021 census

21 Jun 2022 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Census data

The UK Data Service (UKDS) is running a series of free workshops to help researchers. These are particularly aimed at participants from the voluntary and community, and public sector. Applicants are also welcomed from other sectors but priority will be given to those from the targeted sectors.

With the release of the 2021 census due to start shortly this is an opportunity to plan your research with support from UKDS and your peer researchers. The workshops will be held online via Zoom. We plan to hold up to four workshops with a maximum of 20 participants in each. To apply please complete the details on the booking form covering:

  • your organisation and its aims
  • your email contact details
  • your area(/s) of interest
  • a self-assessment of your skills and experience using census and other data

We will contact those who have been given a workshop place with the date and Zoom link. The first workshop date with be 21 June 2022 and other dates will be added in time.

If the workshop series is oversubscribed, we will consider ways to disseminate the learning more widely through guidance or further sessions to accommodate demand. Please note that because of the later release of the Scottish census data we will be repeating this series for those planning to work with Scottish or UK wide data. For any queries please contact
