Learn about the 2021 Census
The census is a once a decade survey of the UK population. It provides detailed information and statistics that drive future decisions and the direction of the country. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is responsible for the census in England and Wales, and their challenge is to get it right. The right questions, the right technology, the right numbers at the end.
Colleagues from ONS will present their plans for the 2021 Census; how the questions are evolving to reflect changes in society, how the census is moving online and how they need to work with partners, government, community groups and the public to make the 2021 Census a success.
ONS will also be discussing the future of the census and what ONS are looking at doing post the 2021 Census, plus explaining what ONS do, apart from the census.
This is an interactive session with discussion and questions encouraged.
The aims of the session are to understand:
- ONS and what does it do
- why there is a census and how it has evolved
- current plans for the 2021 Census including the challenges and opportunities faced
- life for the census beyond 2021
- understand how their work fits around the ONS and how they might use ONS statistics
- understand the wider implications of the census and its impact on society
