Census Data Collected


Well, so far I have struggled this week with wrangling the census data for England & Wales, for all entries where in the household, an Attridge was registered.

That’s 13,374 persons with all their data, to cleanup.

Holding down a normal job, and with two children under the age of 2 and trying to learn and do this, is hard.

Issues I’ve had so far?

I’ll post something more complete when I’m done, but here are some of the juicer ones

Ages like 3 Months 1 Day

Names of one word ‘jas’

Registration Districts that don’t exist

And incomplete data, missing even from the census (mainly military).

Not forgetting the myriad ways in which you can write an occupation. That will be a post on it’s own.
