Census day is Sunday 21st March 2021.
The census gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. This helps to plan and fund public services in your area, such as roads, schools and hospitals. By taking part in the census, you’ll help make sure your community gets the services it needs. You must complete the census by law.
Look out for your pack in the post. It will show you how to complete your census questionnaire. There will be plenty of help for people who need it.
