Census Information


Every 10 years since 1801, the nation has set aside one day for the Census — a count of all people and households.

The last census for England and Wales was on 21 March 2021.  The milestones for each stage of this Census, including data release, are available here

The information the Census provides allows central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to target their resources more effectively and to plan housing, education, health and transport services for years to come.
