Learn about the 2021 Census

The Census is a once a decade survey of the UK population. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is responsible for the census in England and Wales, Alongside ONS’s other statistics, it provides detailed information and statistics that drive future decisions and the direction of the country. Their challenge is to get it right! The right questions, the right technology, the right numbers at the end.

Our interactive sessions will provide an early opportunity for you to hear from colleagues from ONS about their plans for the 2021 Census – how it is evolving to reflect changes in society, using new technology (the Census is moving online). We will outline how the Census fits into ONS’s wider transformation – how it will be integrated to ONS’s other surveys and administrative data work.  We will also explain how ONS work with partners – government, community groups and the public - to make the 2021 Census a success.
