Census 2021

Census Day was Sunday 21 March 2021.

The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.

The Office for National Statistics has announced that the publication of the first census results will take place in early summer 2022. There will be a phased approach to releasing the data from summer 2022 until spring 2023. Data for the UK as a whole will follow later, as Scotland delayed their census to March 2022.

Further information is available in the Office for National Statistics release plans
