In addition to its data collection the history data service supports to online resources that provide improved access to important census material
The Online Historical Population Reports (OHPR) collection provides online access to the complete British population reports for
Britain and Ireland from 1801 to 1937.
The collection goes far beyond the basic population reports with a wealth of textual and statistical material which provide
an in-depth view of the economy, society (through births, deaths and marriages) and medicine during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
These 200,000 pages of census and registration material for the British Isles are supported by numerous ancillary documents
from The National Archives, critical essays and transcriptions of important legislation which provide an aid to understanding the
context, content and creation of the collection.
This section of the History Data Service website contains a fully searchable, descriptive and analytical catalogue of all the
parliamentary and non-parliamentary enclosure maps known by Roger Kain, John Chapman and Richard Oliver to be extant and available
for inspection in public archives and libraries between 1993 and 1997 when the fieldwork for this project was undertaken.
The printed book which accompanies this database discusses the processes of enclosure, assesses the role of maps in that process,
discusses the mapping of each county, illustrates a number of maps, and analyses the cartographic characteristics of enclosure
maps across both space and time. The book also contains an index which lists every map, provides some key descriptive
information about each, and contains links to the fuller information about each map in this database.
The Contemporary and Historical Census Collection (CHCC) improves access to
individual-level demographic data from the manuscript census enumerator's books
and two major collections of aggregate-level demographic data - the Great Britain
Historical Database and the Database of Welsh Historical Statistics. CHCC allows
users to order online subsets from the transcribed census enumerators' books
of the 1881 census for England and Wales. CHCC also allows users to order specific
tables from the Great Britain Historical Database and the Database of Welsh
Historical Statistics. Currently access to CHCC is only available to
members of the UK higher and further education community conducting not-for-profit
research and/or teaching and learning.
