Our downloadable resources page has products that will help you to promote the release of census results. These include editorial copy, logos and leaflets. We will update this page when each topic summary is published.

Item of interest: Measures of National Well-being 

In August, we restarted regular updates of the Measures of National Well-being dashboard, which measures the quality of life in the UK. This publication marked over 10 years since its creation.  

As part of the review, we are launching a consultation to review the measures included in the dashboard and how we communicate these insights. We want to make sure as many people as possible can feed into this. 

To help this represent your communities, you can take part in the survey.
