Census 2021 – Complete Yours Now!

By now everyone should have received their Census letter with their unique access code, and many will have already submitted online or requested, completed and returned a paper form. 

Completing your census form/questionnaire 

Census Day is Sunday 21 March. If you’ve not yet completed your census form, please complete and submit it this weekend. 

The Information Pack you received in early March will tell you what you need to do. Use the unique code given in the Pack to access the form online using any device.

If you can’t find your Information Pack, or need any help (such as getting another access code) call the Help Line. 

It is acceptable for a family member or a trusted person to complete the form on someone else’s behalf. A young carer can also complete on behalf of an adult. 

Call the Census Help Line on 0800 141 2021 or visit census.gov.uk.  

Does everyone have to complete the census form?

Yes. It’s a legal requirement to complete the census. Failure to do so may result in a fine of £1000.

What will happen if I don’t complete the form this weekend?

You will receive reminder postcards and letters and a Census Field Officer may call at your house and leave a paper form for you to complete. Census Field Officers are employed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). They will:

  • be wearing PPE and following Covid-19 regulations.
  • have an ID Badge.
  • NOT enter your property. 
  • NOT ask you for money to complete your form on your behalf.

But please complete it as soon as can.

    I have already completed answering my Census online but I keep being asked to complete it again. I do not have the code as I lost the form. Please can you let me know if my Census questionnaire was submitted on time.

      Hi, Teresa. Sorry for the delay in response – the website isn’t very good at showing notifications so I missed it. Fortunately we will be moving to our new website shortly! Anyway, just checking whether you managed to bottom this out. Did you try calling the dedicated helpline 0800 141 2021? There is also apparently a dedicated support centre in Northampton which you can call on 01604 446 1888. Good luck!
