Census 2021

Census 2021

The census collects information about households across England and Wales, every ten years. Census 2021 will provide fresh information to improve our understanding of the pandemic as well as making sure that the services we use meet the needs of our changing society.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year will be a 'digital-first' census. People are encouraged to respond online on their mobile phones, laptops, PCs or tablets.

People will also be able to complete their census over the phone, with the help of trained staff, or by using the traditional paper form.

Census Day is Sunday 21 March 2021.

The census is a key tool in delivering public services - across health, education, transport and infrastructure.

Every day national and local civil servants, planners, and policy makers use census data to help make decisions which strengthen and transform local neighbourhoods and communities across the country.

A census which provides as comprehensive a picture of the UK as possible is vital to ensuring sound, transparent decisions across the UK.
