This is a new service – your feedback will help us to improve it.


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. This helps to plan and fund public services in your area. The census took place on Sunday 21 March 2021.

By taking part in the census, you’ll make sure that your voice is heard and your community gets the services it needs.

Find more information here on filling in your census questionnaire.

Let’s Count! is a special education programme to teach children all about the census. It includes lessons to support your child’s learning across key areas of both the English and Welsh curriculum. The Let’s Count! programme explains why the census is so important, and how filling in the census questionnaire can help shape children’s futures.
