Integrated census microdata (I-CeM) project

I-CeM will bring together 200 million UK census records from a 60-year period to create a unique resource. The UK Data Archive and the history department at Essex will collaborate to provide census information between 1851 and 1911 to help understand changing social and economic structures over that period. It is hoped that I-CeM will lead to the creation of a Victorian Panel Survey.
