Sunday 21st March is Census Day, where all people and households of England and Wales are required to complete a Census.
This census provides a picture of all households in England and Wales and the data collected will help organisations make decisions on planning and funding public services in your area, including education, healthcare and transport.
You will receive a letter through the post addressed to your household rather than individually. This will provide you with a unique reference number to complete your census online.
If you require a paper census the details on how to acquire one will be on your letter.
You must complete the census by law. It is an offence to supply false information or to not complete the census, and you could be fined up to £1,000.
