Census 2021

Hart - are you ready, steady, census?

Households will receive a letter with a unique access code in the post, allowing them to complete their questionnaire online - this is a digital-first census. Paper questionnaires will be available on request. Census day is Sunday 21 March 2021. For more information, visit census.gov.uk.

Information from the census will help decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, housing or new bus routes. To find out how to get involved, visit the local authority and community partners sections on the website at census.gov.uk
