This report from the Treasury Committee, "Counting the Population (HC 183-I)", examines the process of counting the population and the problems faced by local authorities in estimating what is a highly mobile population in their areas. A number of these problems became visible during the 2001 Census.The conclusions and recommendations include: the methodology for estimating local populations between each census is not fit for purpose because the statistics fail to take proper account of internal migration. A consequence of this is that local authority funding is based on inadequate information, the newly established Statistics Authority should devise a more accurate method to reflect the local population and the effects of internal migration; concerns are raised about the use of the International Passenger Survey in estimating international migration. A new survey is required to provide a more accurate measurement of international movements; and the development of computerised administrative records in the UK requires the Government to put in place strong ethical safeguards to protect personal information.It also includes the Government and the Statistics Authority need to push ahead with the production of the national address register to underpin the accuracy of the 2011 Census, and the traditional census has had its day and the Statistics Authority needs to set out a strategic objective to ensure that the data gathered throughout the UK can be used to produce annual population statistics that are of a quality that will enable the 2011 Census to be the last census in the UK where the population is counted through census forms. The accompanying "Counting the Population - Volume II: Written Evidence (HC 183-II) (ISBN 9780215038036) is available to buy separately, see below.
