Census Day was on Sunday 21st March, but you still have your chance to be counted. Reminders will be sent out and you can request a new access code at www.census.gov.uk if you’ve misplaced yours.
Paper questionnaires can be ordered online or via the phone number 0800 141 2021. This number can also be used if you have any questions while completing your questionnaire, or if you require a trained telephone operator to record your responses.
Census field officers will be out and about over the coming weeks, visiting those who are yet to respond. They’ll carry their Office for National Statistics ID, face coverings, sanitizer and respect social distancing.
If you’re concerned whether someone visiting is an official Census officer, you can call 0800 141 2021. No one will ever ask for payment to help complete the Census or be able to issue a fine on your doorstep if you haven’t yet completed your census.
It’s important that everyone is counted on the census as the data is used to inform local decisions about healthcare, schools and transportation. Local businesses and charities also use the data to make choices about the services they offer.
By law you must complete the Census, with a penalty of £1,000 for anyone who refuses.
