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 gives so much detail about us and the society we live in, and helps local authorities, charities, schools, healthcare providers and many other the right information to plan services properly.

By taking part, you’ll be helping make sure you and your community get the services needed now and in the future.

People will start to receive their 2021 questionnaires through the post from March.

The Census 2021 will be the first Census to be run predominantly online, with households receiving a unique access code, allowing you to complete the questionnaire on a computer, phone or tablet.

The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. And, for the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Results will be available to the public within 12 months, although personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.

We've pulled together some frequently asked questions to cover some of the more common queries people have about the census.

You can find out more on the Census website.
