since it's got no UK names I searched for one of my aunts.
if I search by her maiden name I get her old addresses, and her old age.
search with her married name and she's suddenly ten years older and living in a new place
in the UK if you look on 192.com you can find some interesting details.
even googling for your address can turn up interesting records of who has lived there in the past (which as far as these data scanning companies think) are still people who live there now.
Quite why anyone expects privacy when you're required by law to fill out a census which will then be publicly available is more strange.
(I've just had a quick look and 192 now blank the names unless you're a paid up member)
