The 1911 census information will be released in full on 3 January, 2012, in accordance with the ruling of the Information Commissioner’s Office. On this date the redaction will be reversed and you will be able to see the documents in full. ..... http://www.1911census.co.uk/content/default.aspx?r=24&101

This is on FMP -

On 4 January 2012, we'll be publishing previously unobtainable information about your family's health in 1911 – you won't be able to view this anywhere else.

One more day!

As in the site that I quoted
http://www.1911census.co.uk/content/default.aspx?r=24&101
(the one where we saw the 1911 census in 2009):

The 1920 Census Act required the closure of census information to the public for 100 years. However, the 1911 census is not covered by this act and in December 2006 the Information Commissioner’s Office (new window) ruled that access should be given to the 1911 census, but that personally sensitive information should remain closed for a full 100 years.

What is meant by ‘sensitive information’?

Sensitive information consists of:
Details of infirmity and other health-related information
Information about family relationships that would have been kept secret
Details of children born to women in prison, who were aged three or under at the time of the census

Redaction and release

The 2009 launch is a partial release of the census information, in which the census records will be put online in phases, with the sensitive information digitally obscured or ‘redacted’.

When you look at an example original household page on screen, or try and print it out, you will see that the last column (column 16) appears as a white blank. You may also see other blank areas on the document if there is sensitive information.

The 1911 census information will be released in full on 3 January, 2012, in accordance with the ruling of the Information Commissioner’s Office. On this date the redaction will be reversed and you will be able to see the documents in full.

All was supposed to be revealed on the sites, today 4 Jan.....you were a little too early!

On one viewed image on FMP, and one of the saved ones on 1911census.co.uk, the disability column is visible..........although on the ones looked at, they seem fit and healthy.
