The UK Census on Google Maps

This morning the UK's Office for National Statistics released a new map that compares data from the 2011 census with the 2001 census.

The Census Map allows users to view population and age data from the 2011 census and compare the results with the data from the 2001 census. The visualisation uses two Google Maps placed side-by-side. Different variables from the census data can be selected from a drop-down menu.

If the user selects a census tract on either map they can then view a breakdown of the census results in a drop-down table, comparing the 2010 and 2001 census returns.

Other variables will be added to the map as this data is released from the 2011 UK census.
