The Census

The Census 2021 is coming. By taking part, you can help inform decisions about services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport. The once-in-a-decade, nationwide survey of housing and the population helps decide how services are planned and funded in your local area from doctors’ surgeries to new bus routes.

Census day will be on March 21, but households will receive letters with online codes allowing them to take part from early March.

You can fill your questionnaire in online as soon as you get your access code in the post and your personal information is protected by law. If you need help, you can visit where there’s a wide range of support services available in various languages.
