Date & Time
The biggest survey of our population.
The Census, happening on Sunday 21 March 2021, takes place every ten years and provides valuable information about households across the UK. By completing it, you will help us plan many of the services we provide and help shape your community for the next ten years.
Current restrictions mean everyone is encouraged to complete the Census digitally this year. Everyone will receive a letter at the beginning of March with an access code to enable you to complete the Census online and you can start filling yours in as soon as you receive your code. Completing it online is the quickest and easiest way to fill it in.
A range of support services are available for anyone who needs help completing the Census. A freephone number will be available from early March, offering help over the phone and guidance in a range of languages and accessible formats, including providing paper questionnaires and large print if you can’t complete the Census online.
More information and guidance is available at www.census.gov.uk.
