The census is coming on Sunday 21 March 2021.
By taking part, you can help to inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education and transport.
It’s important that you fill in your census questionnaire online, because the information you share affects the life of every single person living in England and Wales.
Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, your information is protected by law.
That means government officials dealing with payments or services you receive cannot see it.
Census Day is Sunday 21 March 2021.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) will send you a letter in the post with an access code and instructions. You can fill in your census questionnaire online as soon as you get yours.
If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let The Office for National Statistics (ONS) know.
If you need help, you can visit www.census.gov.uk where there’s a wide range of support services available.
You can also download a copy of the Your Questions Answered leaflet here.
