I used to work for the National Archives (across the street from you) and frequently did talks to genealogy groups about using Federal census information. By reducing the amount of information collected in the Census, we are doing serious damage to future researchers.

The UK govt are considering no longer carrying out a census after the next one in 2011. The view is that there are other, better ways of collecting the data going forward.
