About the Census Survey

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.

The information you give helps decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors' surgeries, housing or new bus routes. 

It asks questions about you and your household to build a picture of all of us. It looks at who we are and how we live. There's no other survey that gives as much information about our society and future needs.

You can view any census data that is published at Office for National Statistics.

Since 1801, every ten years the Office for National Statistics sets aside one day for the census and a count of all people and households.

It is the most complete source of information about the population that we have.
