Census 2021

The census is for everyone. It’s a unique survey that happens every 10 years and gives a snapshot of all the people in England and Wales.

It can work out what the country's needs are and help inform decisions about services, like healthcare. Predicting future healthcare needs is never easy, which is why it’s vital for everyone to complete a Census 2021 form. Public health organisations use this information to apply for funding and planning. 

By filling in your census, you will help shape your community for the next 10 years. Find out more about what the census means for you here:
