The decennial census is almost upon us.
Dave Yorke, the Office for National Statistics Census Engagement Manager for the Sefton area, says “households across the Sefton area will soon be asked to take part in the nationwide survey of housing and the population. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941. Information from the digital-first census will help decide how services are planned and funded in your local area. This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, housing or new bus routes.”
Census 2021 will be online. It will be easy to fill it in on your phone, tablet, laptop or any other device that can use the internet. Households will receive a letter with a unique access code in the post, allowing them to complete their questionnaire online. Paper questionnaires will be available on request.
Census day is 21 March 2021.
