Population Census

The database includes a large body of information transcribed from the published reports of the Censuses of Population for England and Wales, and for Scotland, starting with the first census of 1801.

The construction of this part of the database was assisted by a large grant from the Economic and Social Research Council, covering digitisation work by the Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis at the Queen's University, Belfast, between 1998 and 2000. However, it also includes much information computerised by collaborators.
