Today we have published our report "How the National Records of Scotland is ensuring Census 2021 is trustworthy, high quality and of value to users”. This is our first step towards measuring our progress against the Code and will form part of the Office for Statistics Regulation assessment.
Scotland’s Census 2021 are holding events in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Dundee to discuss current plans for outputs, and further develop our plans.
These events cover geography, microdata, origin-destination data, plans for updating our Scotland’s Census website, and the different ways in which we will present data and analysis.
You can find out more about these events and how to book yourself a place on our Events and Workshop page.
The Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) is carrying out an assessment of the 2021 Censuses for Scotland, England and Wales, and Northern Ireland. OSR will be assessing the extent to which the censuses meet the professional standards set out in the statutory Code of Practice for Statistics.
Following the publication of our Plans for Scotland’s Census 2021, NRS have undertaken further investigation into a limited number of requests which were made for the ethnic group and religion response options to be reviewed and/or additional information to be collected.
