The government is due to start collecting information for Census 2021 very soon. The census is an official survey that takes place every 10 years to give an accurate estimate of the population and households in England and Wales.

Completing your census entry is really important because it helps the government and other organisations (like housing associations) make decisions that affect you and your community. The survey gives you the opportunity to have your say and influence change on both local and national levels.

What’s next?

You can expect a leaflet in the post with more information about the census and instructions on how to complete it. Census 2021 will be the first digital-first census. It’s simple to use and can be completed on any device. If you are unable to fill out the census online, other options are available.
