IA National Data Service – Census 2021 – UK Armed Forces Veterans Topic

Last updated: 17th of January 2023

The National Data Service has been updated with the data from the UK armed forces veterans topic summary from Census 2021.

This adds around 30 new indicators to the service, with data available at the geographies it has been published for by ONS:

  • Country
  • Region
  • Upper Tier Local Authority
  • Lower Tier Local Authority

These new indictors are all located under the Population, Veterans theme.

For customers with a managed Data Observatory website, the data are displayed in the following places:

1) Population Map Explorer (updated 14th Jan 2023)

2) Data Explorer (updated 14th Jan 2023)

3) Upper and lower tier local authority Population reports (updated 17th Jan 2023)

We aim to add the data from the remaining topic summaries (phase 1) by the end of the January, and update our reports with these new indicators.

IA National Data Service – Census 2021 – Demography and Migration Topic

Last updated: 21st of December 2022

The National Data Service has been updated with the data from the Demography and migration topic summary from Census 2021.

This adds nearly 1,500 new indicators to the service, with data available at the geographies it has been published for by ONS:

  • Country
  • Region
  • Upper Tier Local Authority
  • Lower Tier Local Authority
  • Middle Layer Super Output Area
  • Lower Layer Super Output Area

To display the LSOA level data we have added a new core geography to the National Data Service called LSOA 2021.

Although ONS did not publish data at ward level, where possible we have generated values at this level by aggregating values from OA area using a population weighted centroids best fit method.

These new indictors are all located under the Population theme, and organised into subthemes that reflect the census table that they were sourced from. We have retained the structure the data were published in, and have also retained the name of the census table in the theme names and indicator names. This is helpful for users that are familiar with the way the census data is organised and/or the names of the tables.

Under each top level theme in the National Data Service, the old data from Census 2011 have been moved into a subtheme labeled Census 2011, to avoid confusion with the 2021 data.

For customers with a managed Data Observatory website, the data are displayed in the following places:

1) Population Map Explorer (updated 6th Dec 2022)

Map explorer with census 2021 data

2) Data Explorer (updated 6th Dec 2022)

Data explorer with census 2021 data

3) Upper and lower tier local authority Population reports (updated 7th and 9th Dec 2022)

Report with Census 2021 data from Demography and migration topic

In January we will be adding data for the further topic summaries that have been released by ONS and updating our ward level reports in addition to the reports at local authority level.

Working with the Map Widget in Report Builder

Adding a map to your reports can provide some much needed context for your readers, and also display your data in an informative and engaging style. While a lot of the Report Builder widgets will likely be intuitive for the avid ArcGIS Online user, there are some widgets you may not be familiar with.

The map widget allows you to display a map of the report base layer either as a simple map of the areas available to report on, or as a thematic map, focused on a particular indicator. Alternatively, this widget also allows you to display any other web map you have available within ArcGIS Online.

Within this blog, I will walk you through an example use case of the Web Map widget, to help you get started with your own report. I will be using the new 2021 Census Population Summary data, filtered down by region.

IA National Data Service – Census 2021 first results

The first results of Census 2021 were added to the National Data Service on 4th July 2022 and are now available for viewing.

This brand new set of around 140 indicators can be found in the the Population theme, under a Census 2021 subtheme. This dataset combines the first release results for 2021 – available at local authority, region and country level for England and Wales – with the closest equivalent data selected from NOMIS for 2011, 2001 and 1991 to show change over time in the headline data. The population estimates are broken down by sex, broad age group and 5-year age groups.

Note that there may be some differences to the basis on how the values were generated. Note also that this first release data for 2021 gives figures rounded to the nearest 100 – later release will be unrounded and can be expected to show some differences to these figures.

For customers with a managed Data Observatory website, the data are displayed in the following places:

1) Population reports for top and lower tier local authorities (updated 7th July 2022)

NDS report with Census 2021 data

2) Population Map Explorer (updated 4th July 2022)

Map Explorer with Census 2021 data

3) Data Explorer (updated 4th July 2022)
