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. It is run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).


Census 2021 took place on Sunday 21 March.

Census 2021 included questions about sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity.

Answers to the census questions help organisations and local authorities make decisions on planning and funding public services in the area, including transport, education and healthcare.
