1991 has seen a new census and local authorities will be keen to analyse the changes which have occurred since the last census. Their analysis will be helped by the introduction of Geographical Information Systems which have been recommended by the Chorley Report. The findings of ten in‐depth interviews with local authority officers within planning departments are examined in this pilot study. These officers were asked about Geographical Information Systems, the Population Census and the Census of Distribution.
