Census 2021

    This service is not run by the Council and information should be used for contact purposes only

    Service Description: The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. The information you give helps decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, housing or new bus routes.

    It asks questions about you and your household to build a picture of all of us. It looks at who we are and how we live. There’s no other survey that gives as much information about our society and future needs.

    The census takes place every 10 years. The first census was in 1801 and the most recent in 2011. The next census is planned for March 2021. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) delivers the census. We need every household in England and Wales to take part to make it accurate.

    It's not too late to complete the Census! Deputy National Statistician, Iain Bell, said: "Every household should have received their letter inviting them to take part and we've had a great response so far. If you haven't completed it yet, or you have misplaced your letter, there's still time."
