Assessment of 2022 Census in Scotland
Today we have published our phase 2 assessment report of the 2022 Census in Scotland.
You will see from our report we have included a section on Census estimates and UK comparability and highlight that little detailed information has been made public on how UK population estimates will be produced that take account of the 2022 Scotland Census. As ONS has responsibility for UK estimates, I wanted to bring this to your attention.
In our phase 2 assessment report for 2021 Census in England and Wales, we included a requirement for ONS on population estimates and UK census data. As you progress your work in this area, please take account of the points raised in today’s report.
