Census 2021 will provide a snapshot of modern society

Households across Herefordshire will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941. It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.

Census day –  Sunday 21 March 2021

Census day will be on March 21, but households across the country will receive letters with online codes allowing them to take part from early March.

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