Census 2021 is coming – Census Day is on Sunday 21 March. It’s important that everyone in Uxbridge and South Ruislip takes part.
The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The census is run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in England and Wales. The ONS is the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics.
The information you give helps to inform decisions on how to plan and fund services in the local area. This includes services such as transport, education and healthcare. It will also provide vital information for future decisions made by Parliament. Census 2021 will ask questions about you and your household to build a picture of all of us. It looks at who we are, what we do and how we live. The census is important because it gives the most detailed information we have about our society.
All households in Uxbridge and South Ruislip should now have received a letter in the post which will explain how to take part. The letter contains a household access code, which you should use to complete the census online. If you cannot get online, there are paper forms available for those who need them.
