The Census, held every 10 years, will take place on Sunday 21st March 2021.
By now, residents should have received a letter and leaflet with information about how to complete the Census.
NB: This will be the first time that households/individuals will be able to complete their Census forms online, and a family member or trusted friend will be able to help those who don’t have internet access or are not used to doing things online.
If you would prefer a hard copy form you can request this, either online at www.census.gov.uk or by calling the Census Help Line on 0800 141 2021 (calls to this number are free of charge). You’ll need your reference number, which you’ll find at the top of your letter.
What the census is
The census is a survey run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) that gives a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. All kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, use the information to help provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare. Without the census, it would be much more difficult to do this.
By taking part, you’ll be helping make sure you and your community get the services needed now and in the future.
