What is the census?
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. Local councils, charities and many other organisations use census information to decide how to spend billions of pounds on services every year. This includes spending on transport, education and healthcare. To make sure this money is spent where it’s most needed, it’s important that the census counts everyone.
By taking part and encouraging others to do the same, you’ll help make sure your community gets the services it needs.
Nearer the time, you’ll receive more information. There’ll be plenty of help to take part for people who need it. You can find out more at http://www.census.gov.uk
