Government urged to end 10-year census

The government is being urged to make redundant the process of drawing information from computerised tax returns and end the ten-yearly national census.

The Commons Treasury Committee have issued a report insisting accessing Inland Revenue and Department of Work and Pensions data bases as an alternative must be evaluated before a decision is taken to hold a mid-term census in 2006.

The MPs recommended: ‘Any evaluation will also need to take account of the likely acceptability to the general public of drawing on other data sources, such as tax and benefit records, for census purposes.’
