4d: Additional data needs

England and Wales are facing a period of rapid social and economic changes, as a result of Brexit and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We've started to consider these changes in our plans for new derived variables. However, we recognise that we may not have anticipated all data users’ needs.

Let us know if you have any other needs for new derived variables using Census 2021 data.  

Please provide as much detail as possible to justify your data needs. For example, what policy or planning decisions would the data analysis affect? The decisions we make on new derived variables will take into consideration factors such as quality and statistical disclosure control.

Are there any new derived variables you require that have not been discussed in this consultation?

If you selected ‘Yes’, please describe:

  • the additional derived variable you require, providing definitions where possible
  • the additional analysis that you plan to do using this variable and the value of undertaking this research
  • where relevant, the tables you require and what geography
  • what planning or policy decisions could this analysis could feed into

If you plan more than one additional piece of analysis, please list out each one separately in the subsequent questions.
