Census 2021

It is Census day on 21 March 2021. Every 10 years the census gives us a complete picture of the nation.

 

Census 2021 will be mainly online. There are people who’ll find this challenging so we must make sure the census is as accessible and inclusive as possible.

 

The involvement and support of councillors and council executives will be vital to ensure a successful census in Epping Forest District. We need your help to spread the important message across your social media as well as within the community to ensure we achieve a high number of completed census questionnaires across the district. 

 

Billions of pounds are allocated to local authorities in England and Wales every year using census information. It’s therefore important that census estimates are accurate, so that these funds can be allocated where they’re needed. To get accurate estimates, a good response to the census is required from all areas and communities.

 

There is a full range of support services available. These include:

·         Comprehensive guidance and support in many languages and formats

·         Help in local centres with trained staff and online access from 1 March – April 26

·         A contact centre to provide help via telephone, web chat and social media

·         Field staff contacting households that have not yet responded

·         Accessible census questionnaires, for example in large print

·         The option to request paper questionnaires

 

The census will automatically issue paper questionnaires in areas where they’ve identified residents are highly likely to need them.

 

We will be promoting the census campaign across our social media pages to raise awareness as well as working with other partners to help provide local centres for residents to attend to get help with completing the census. All our centres will follow covid-19 safety regulations.
