Census 2021 envelope

Census Day is Sunday 21 March, with Census 2021 in full swing in Rutland.

Letters, containing households’ unique access codes have been delivered and the online form can be completed on laptops, smart phones and tablets. The Census takes just 10 minutes per person to complete. 

This census is the most inclusive yet. Everyone can identify as they wish using search as you type online and write-in options on paper if they need it. The questionnaire includes 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.

Operating in line with the Government’s latest Covid-19 guidance, field officers will be deployed across the country to contact those who have not responded. They will offer help and advice to those who need it. They will also remind people that their census response is required by law.

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

To complete your census, and to find out how you can get help, please visit the Census website or call 0800 141 2021.
