Analyzing perceived limiting long-term illness using U.K. Census Microdata.

Author information

Department of Geography, University of Portsmouth, England.


The 1991 Census of England, Wales and Scotland is an improvement on previous censuses in providing fine-grained detail on the geography of limiting long-term illness. Another innovation of the 1991 Census is the release of a Sample of Anonymized Records (SARs). These provide a considerable sample of detailed data on individuals at the sub-regional level. This paper explores individual and geographical variations in morbidity through a multilevel analysis of the SARs. Geographical differences in morbidity are found even after allowing for age, sex, ethnicity, housing tenure, social class and car ownership.
