Census 2011

A census is a count of the population. We have had one in the UK every ten years to find out more about who we are as a nation. We ask everyone to tell us a bit about themselves to help census users decide how best to plan and deliver the everyday services we all need – like housing, education, healthcare and transport. 

The census will take place 27 March 2011 and by now you should have received your questionnaire. For further information go to:http://2011.census.gov.uk/en/homepage.php
