Census 2021

Every ten years the census takes place in England and Wales, providing insight into the people who live across the country and what their lives are like. This year, census day is on Sunday 21 March. You've probably already seen lots of advertisements and information on the TV, in newspapers and social media and you should have received your purple postcard in the post.

Look out for your Information Pack More »

Next week every house will be sent an Information Pack which will explain how to complete the census and contain a unique code which will give them access to the form using any digital device.

If someone doesn't want to complete the census themselves, a family member or a trusted person can do it on their behalf. People can also request a paper copy. Everything will be explained in the Information Pack.

Where can people get help?
