I am sorry to bother the list for this but I have deleted(by accident)
the site where the 2% Census can be found, I can not remember which year
either. Does anyone have the site and if so if they can let me know.

Permit me to surprise and dismay you by expressing the hope that
no-one sends you the URL.
The reason I have for this apparently outrageous hope is that the
site you refer to is providing, in its set of 2% census files, what
is in effect bootlegged data. (It is a site in Germany, that
apparently regards copyright as unimportant.)
Some years ago, through a misunderstanding, we briefly made these
files available in GENUKI - tghough we removed them immediately when
we were informed that this was expressly against the wishes of the
copyright owner, an Edinburgh University professor who had led the
research project that had produced these files. However the files,
together with convenient software for searching and analysing them,
were then made officially and legally available on a CD-ROM that I
believe S & N Genealogy Supplies still stock.
