About the project:


Our I-CeM resources site was launched to provide a starting point for users looking to begin using, or improve their understanding of our I-CeM database. This website is intended to provide a starting point for students, researchers and professional academics, however, much of the information presented here is advanced in nature – for a basic “getting started” guide (ideal for students) please click the “quick help guide” button above, for a quick start document.

On this site you will find Learning Materials and FAQ section, as well as Forums where you can pose questions to the system creators. You can also find a blog where the latest news and information relating to I-CeM is posted. When conducting research, you can also make use of our quick reference Variable Matrix as well as the Occupation code lookup page.

The Integrated Census Microdata (I-CeM) database was constructed at the University of Essex, over a period of three years. The I-CeM database makes available to researchers detailed information about everyone resident in the UK, collected at each decennial census from 1851 to 1911.
