The census is a survey that takes place every 10 years.
The survey gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales.
The information you give helps decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, housing, or cycle routes.
The first results of the Census 2021 will be published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in Spring 2022.
