Census 2021

Households across Rutland will be asked to take part in Census 2021 this spring. Census day will be 21 March. 

The census, run by the Office for National Statistics, is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every ten years since 1801, except 1941.

The information is used to help understand the needs of the nation, which allows central government and organisations, such as councils and health authorities, to plan and fund public services across England and Wales. 

Census 2021 will be the first run mainly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing you to complete the questionnaire on your computer, phone or tablet. The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. 

Help will be available to complete the census and paper forms will be available to those who need them.

Rutland Census 2011

The Performance and Application Team at Rutland County Council worked on behalf of the Corporate Equality and Diversity Group to produce a document that analysed the information and statistics published from the 2011 census.   

The 2011 census allowed us to reflect on the  makeup of the population in Rutland as well as looking at the regional and national picture. The document makes comparisons against the 2011 census and the 2001 census; it is broken down into three main areas:   

  • Caring, Earning and Qualification
  • Quality of Life
  • Diversity and Migration
