The UKData Service are holding a two day event at the University of Manchester in July (16 – 17) entitled “Census Applications: Using the UK population census data“.
The UK population census data provides the most compressive snapshot of life in the UK today, it isn’t just about allocating money to local authorities to run public services it can be used to help to track and analyse social and economic trends and capture the diversity of our people.
This looks to be a highly informative event. You can find out more by visiting the UKData Service on the link below. There is also a link to our very own CensusAtSchool project, that demonstrates how census data can be introduced to the classroom to enliven multiple subjects with real data.
Below you can find further information on two very different, but not too so, events in March that look too good to miss, both are linked to a book. The first is ‘The Improbability Principle Why Coincidences Miracles and Rare Events Happen Every Day‘ on the 11th of March at Imperial College London at the South Kensington Campus the second is ‘Transitions in Undergraduate Mathematics Education‘ at the University of Birmingham at the Edgbaston Campus on the 25th of March.
