A number of tools are available for accessing census data available via the UK Data Service Census Support.
UKDS.Stat enables you to extract information from the large socio-economic international datasets available at the UK Data Service.

Beyond 20/20 Web Data Server (WDS) can be used to display, subset and download international macrodata. It runs on a standard web browser and is used by many governmental and intergovernmental organisations for the dissemination of time series aggregated data.
The Qualidata Online service allows the exploration of qualitative data collections (and associated metadata) in many different ways. The data in the system includes not only traditional interview transcripts, but also audio and image files.
The Online Historical Population Reports (OHPR) collection provides online access to the complete British population reports for Britain and Ireland from 1801 to 1937. This collection goes 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.
Provides access to aggregate historical census data from the Great Britain Historical Database and the Database of Welsh Historical Statistics, and also allows users to order online subsets from the transcribed census enumerators' books of the 1881 census for England and Wales, and to order specific tables. Access to these data is only available to members of the UK higher and further education community conducting not-for-profit research and/or teaching and learning.
