Census - User Corrections

Since the Online Census went live, the National Archives has received thousands of emails detailing error corrections through our error feedback facility. Until recently, we had no staff to undertake the task of verifying these suggested corrections, and entering them in the database. Over the last year, however, we have been able to make a start on this task, and have validated and corrected 12,600 submissions. We have now re-indexed the site to incorporate these corrections.

We hope, subject to resource constraints, to continue this important work, and we thank our users for their patience in waiting a considerable length of time to see their very useful corrections implemented.
