United Kingdom - Census 2001 - IPUMS Subset

Primary tabs

IPUMS-International is an effort to inventory, preserve, harmonize, and disseminate census microdata from around the world. The project has collected the world's largest archive of publicly available census samples. The data are coded and documented consistently across countries and over time to facillitate comparative research. IPUMS-International makes these data available to qualified researchers free of charge through a web dissemination system. The IPUMS project is a collaboration of the Minnesota Population Center, National Statistical Offices, and international data archives. Major funding is provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Demographic and Behavioral Sciences Branch of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Additional support is provided by the University of Minnesota Office of the Vice President for Research, the Minnesota Population Center, and Sun Microsystems.

Version Description: 
Version 6.4. The datasets contain selected variables from the original census microdata plus harmonized variables from the IPUMS-International database.In v6.4, the research team continued to carry out improvements to geography, providing harmonized geographic units for the second administrative level for roughly half the countries. More information about IPUMS geography variables is available here. Also, approximately 100 integrated variables were renamed. Affected variables with their current and previous names are listed here. Geography variable also underwent wholesale renaming.In this update, IPUMS added 19 new samples for Armenia, Austria, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, France, Ghana, Mozambique, Paraguay, Portugal, Puerto Rico, South Africa, and Spain. Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Paraguay were newly added countries to IPUMS. Samples for other countries extend pre-existing series for those countries.

Primary Investigator Name, Affiliation: 
Centre for Census and Survey Research; Minnesota Population Center - University of Minnesota
Sampling Procedure: 
MICRODATA SOURCE: Office of Population Censuses and Surveys. The 2001 SARs were sampled from the One Number Census database for the entire UK. SAMPLE DESIGN: The sampling scheme for the household SAR (Sample of anonymised records) is a stratified simple random sampling, where the strata are EDs (Enumeration districts). Unlike 1991, there is no stratification within EDs. Random sampling is applied within each ED. The sampling scheme for the individual SAR follows the 1991 approach of drawing from the population excluding the household sample. Stratification is again by ED. The Individual SAR sampled both private and communal persons, unlike the household SAR which only sampled only households. SAMPLE UNIT: Dwelling SAMPLE FRACTION: 3.0% SAMPLE SIZE (person records): 1,843,525
Response Rates: 
UNDERCOUNT: No official estimates
Weighting: 
Weights computed by census agency.
Questionnaires: 
England household form (H1)
