This workshop will cover principles and practice for understanding the 
geography of census data. The workshop will be delivered by staff from two 
Data Support Units, UKBORDERS and the Census Dissemination Unit (CDU). 
Participants will get an introduction to digitised boundary datasets and 
Postcode Data Selector provided by UKBORDERS at Edina and an overview of 
the National Statistics Postcode Directory, Casweb and the GeoConvert tool 
from CDU. 

There will also be a hands-on practical session where delegates can 
experiment with geographical datasets, supported by experts from the two 
project teams. Ward boundaries, and 1991 and 2001 census data will be used 
for the UKBORDERS exercises, which will entail downloading the data, 
uploading the boundaries in a GIS and joining the census tabular data to 
generate choropleth maps.

The workshop is addressed to the needs of a broad range of social science 
users and does not assume any prior experience with geographical information 
systems (GIS) or other specialist software. It will be particularly attractive to 
those whose work involves (for example) the manipulation and analysis of 
census, postcodes, deprivation and health datasets.

Samantha Cockings, Lecturer in the School of Geography, University of 
Southampton, will give a short talk outlining research (together with the Office 
for National Statistics) which is developing automated methods for maintaining 
the 2001 geographies in order to create the 2011 Census output geographies 
for England and Wales.

This workshop will include an introduction to the data services offered by 
Census.ac.uk and is aimed at those studying or working in the UK higher and 
further education sector, but is not limited to those already registered to use 
the census. 

The workshop is free to attend and includes lunch and refreshments. However 
travel and accommodation costs will need to be met by the participants.

Time: 10.00-16.00 (registration and refreshments at 09.30)
Date: Friday, 8 May 2009
Place: Room 2X6, Cottrell Building, University of Stirling, Stirling, FK9 4LA
