Census Ready Reckoner
« on: Tuesday 19 June 07 15:30 BST (UK) »
I got so fed up having to keep doing the maths to calculate year of birth from age given on the Census, I made up a Ready Reckoner, with Census years at the top, ages down the side, and birth years in the centre grid.

Here it is as a PDF - hope it's useful!

Thankyou!  :D

That will be very handy - there is nothing worse than someone giving an age but not the date of birth!

Much appreciated!  :)

Thanks Brambletye

It will be so much quicker than the usual counting backwards. The number of times I've done calculations that turned out to be years out!
