The information collected is vitally important for government and local authorities as it helps them plan services such as healthcare, education, public transport, libraries and support services.   The data informs other official statistics and contributes to policy decisions such as local government funding allocations.  Filling in the census is crucial to shaping communities over the next 10 years.  

The information collected is vitally important for government and local authorities as it helps them plan services such as education, healthcare, libraries, public transport, social and support services.  This year the survey will be the first Census to be carried out predominantly online.  Every household will receive a letter with a unique access code in order to access the questionnaire by a variety of digital equipment, from computers, phones or tablets.  For those who do not have online access, paper copies of the questionnaire will be made available.

The statistical results are made available within 12 months, however your personal records are locked away for 100 years and kept safe for future generations to explore.

Let’s make Census 2021 count in our community.
