Data Warehouse Tutorial

The NICA Data Warehouse enables users to download all of the available Census tables for a particular area. The availability of tables is dependent on the geographic level chosen e.g. District Council or Health Board. The data for each table are contained in their own csv file and all the csv files for a given area are then zipped into a single file for speed of download.

If multiple areas are selected then the individual zip files are zipped again into a
single file.

If you choose to download any of these zip files you will need to \u201cunzip\u201d them once they have been saved on to yourcomputer. To do this, you will need to run archive software such as Winzip or other archive extracting software. If you selected multiple areas then you will have to repeat the process again for each individual area to obtain the csv files which are now ready for use.

A complete list of the zip file contents for any particular area level may be viewed before or after download by clicking the link in the \u201cDocumentation\u201d section of the download page.

To access Data Warehouse from the home page, need to click on the \u201cData
Warehouse\u201d button on the left hand side of the screen.
The next screen should look like the one below. This screen is known as the \u201cSelect
area\u201d screen which is the first of two steps required to download data.
Selecting your area of interest

At the top of the Warehouse page, you should see a route map (as pictured below). This indicates where you are at any stage of the process and this route will prove useful when you are unsure of what step you are currently performing.

Step one simply requires you to choose from the 8 standard census geographies.
Geographic areas can be chosen in two different ways, as detailed below.
1. Selecting by list menu.

If you select your geography by list, you can only extract areas from the area types in this list.

When you enter the geographic area selection, the 1st option \u2018Local Government District\u2019 is highlighted in blue, i.e. the option currently selected. As you pull the cursor/hand over the options they change to khaki. When you click on an option with the left mouse button, it turns blue to show it is chosen.

At the same time, the names of the divisions that make up that area type are shown in the blue box to the right. For example if you click on \u2018Local Government District\u2019 the names of the 1st 15 Local Government Districts appear in the right hand blue box and you can scroll down to see the remainder.

You can then select the actual areas by clicking on the option box to the left of the area name. You can select one or more areas. When an area has been selected a little tick appears in the option box. If you decide you picked the wrong area then simply click again on the box and the tick will disappear, removing that area from your selection.
