The project to link 2011 Census data for England and Wales to the LS database is nearing completion. After the inclusion of this data the LS will hold information on 1.1 million members and five decades of census data. The inclusion of 2011 Census data also means the LS will hold information on intention to stay, passports held, visitors, second addresses, main language and civil partnerships for the first time. It also means that for the second consecutive decade the LS will have information on general health, caring and religion. Researchers are currently testing a beta test version of the database as part of the final evaluation of quality before the database is launched in November 2013. Details of the research projects selected to test the database are shown in the poster along with the full range of census information available in the LS.
