Abstract

Amongst the new output formats adopted for the 1991 Census were the Small Area and Local Base Statistics tables and the Samples of Anonymised Records. During an attempt to combine these data sources to estimate whole populations, a need was recognised for a computer algorithm to aggregate SAR data flexibly into LBS and SAS table look-alikes. This paper is a report on progress in the development of such an algorithm, including the concomitant development of a meta-database of census tables and variables required as an input to the algorithm. Out of this work a user-friendly, freely disseminable version of the census meta-database has been created, of interest to all census users.
