Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

Census flow data involve flows of individuals in the UK between origins and destinations. These flows are either the residential migrations of individuals from one place of usual residence to another, or of commuters making journeys from home to workplace.

These data are derived from the questions on the census form relating to usual place of residence one year ago, and the place of work for the respondent's main job.

Main Topics:
The Web-based Interface to Census Interaction Data (WICID) Flow Data service facilitates access to the interaction data for members of UK higher and further education institutions.

The 1981 datasets currently held include:
  • Census migration datasets: 1981 Census: Special Migration Statistics (Set C and 1981 county/regional Geography); Ward-level migration data re-estimated for 1991 and 2001 boundaries. County/region-level data for 1981
  • Census commuting datasets: 1981 Census: Special Workplace Statistics (Set C and 1981 county/regional Geography); Ward-level migration data re-estimated for 1991 and 2001 boundaries; County/region-level data for 1981.
