This tells you how to report transcription errors without having purchased the transcript.

Thanks for this I've sent my corrections.

I have been searching for people living at  5 to 21 (odd nos) Benson Street, Leeds. These numbers do not show up in the address search, nor as individuals known to be at these addresses in the 1919, 1922 electoral registers. Is it that these schedules are missing from the census?

Welcome to RootsChat WAS800.

It would appear that 1901 census is the latest census where those numbers appear.  1891 has a much larger number of households.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.
He/she who never made a mistake, never made anything.

I'd like to thank Groom for her great tip on trying to find missing people.

I was trying to find my Grandmother and her family. Despite having comprehensive info on them through birth and death records which narrowed it down to a 4/5 year period I just couldn't find any of the 8 of them.

Having read the above on mis-transcribing I searched with my GGFs christian and middle name and birth year, leaving the surname blank, in the area where I knew where they lived and there they all were.

Their surname of Jenner had been transcribed as Jermar !

Cheers Groom
