Workshop: The concept of usual residence: has it reached its sell-by date?

A unusal residence:   

London School of Economics, London, the 24. October 2014

The main question to be addressed is: ‘Is the concept of ‘usual residence’ reaching its sell-by date?’ Now that the Government has confirmed that a further Population Census will take place in 2021, it is an opportune time to consider how far the use of alternative population bases should be expanded at the expense of statistics based on usual residence.

The meeting is proposed primarily as a scoping exercise. Speakers will introduce the issues, present the results of work on the 2011 census data on alternative population bases and report on the latest thinking at the UN for the 2020 round of censuses. The meeting also provides a forum for representatives of a variety of sectors to express their views on the relative value of the alternatives in the light of societal change. Already on board are Richard Potter, ONS, Ian White, Ludi Simpson and Tony Champion.
