Are you ready for the census?

2 March 2021

The 10-yearly census of all the people and households in England and Wales takes place on Sunday 21 March 2021.

You will be asked to complete an online survey which will help decide how services where you live, such as housing, healthcare, transport and education, are planned and funded.

You’ll receive a letter through the post with a unique access code so you can complete the questionnaire online. You can also ask for a paper questionnaire.

A census has been carried out every decade since 1801, apart from in 1941.
