More on the Census...

....pinched from The Waspsnest

I recently posted the questions for the 2011 census. I also pointed out potential privacy issues, as spotted by The Wasp, and an FOI request that he sent to find details of who gets access to the Census data.

The Wasp has received a wishy washy response from the ONS that doesn't answer the questions he asked.

‘APPROVED RESEARCHER’ (AR) was a new legal gateway that was created by the Statistics and Registration Services Act 2007. This was a project specific gateway that only permitted an individual to access data held by ONS for a specific statistical purpose. The AR is required to meet the published criteria for an AR. that (sic) ensured they were a ‘fit’ person to use the data and that they would use the data for a ‘fit’ purpose.
and the like.
