Households across England and Wales will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.

Stuart Keeble, Director of Public Health Suffolk, said: “This national lockdown isn’t an injustice for Suffolk.
“Sadly, our infection rates continue to accelerate, and without this decisive action, it would be just a short time before parts of Suffolk would meet some of the Tier 2 criteria. Coronavirus is an acute and complicated challenge, one which affects our lives and our livelihoods. We must abide by the national lockdown from Thursday to ensure that we can enjoy our freedoms in the future.

Suffolk Constabulary is urging more residents to consider using alternative methods of contacting the force in its latest campaign.
The Contact and Control Room (CCR) continues to receive high volumes of calls particularly at weekends and during holiday periods. With the surge in calls, this can inevitably mean there is an impact on waiting times.
Instead of waiting on the phone, residents can go to the force’s website and report non-urgent crime online by clicking the ‘report something’ button. The matter will then be dealt with in the same way as a call to 101 - It may even be quicker and more convenient.
