Teaching with census data

17 Jan 2023 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Census data

Census 2021 will provide demographic, employment, housing and other characteristics about local populations at neighbourhood level. This free workshop is designed to enable those teaching undergraduate students to use this local material to explore substantive questions related to their discipline. The aims of the workshop are to enable participants to be able to:

  • Appreciate the geography of local areas and the data that is provided from the census.
  • Be able to access, prepare and present census data.
  • Develop appropriate exercises for students to engage in practical exploration, analysis and reporting on substantive topics of interest.

The workshop will use Microsoft Excel software and provide supporting materials to enable students to develop basic skills in data analysis and reporting the results in charts and tables.

The workshop will also outline more advanced techniques to combine other neighbourhood-based information and prepare materials to combine with GIS software to produce maps.

Presenter: Nigel de Noronha, UK Data Service (University of Manchester)
