2011 Census

Thank you for filling in your Census form

The 2011 Census forms that were completed in March 2011 are currently providing information that is being used to produce population estimates for the country as whole as well as all geographical regions and all local authority areas.

The information taken from the Census can help local authorities to understand the needs of different people and groups in their communities. This in turn will give a clear idea of the kind of services in areas such as housing, schools, transport and healthcare, needing to be considered about over the next ten years, and importantly help to make sure the appropriate central government funding to plan those services is obtained.

Further data and information about the 2011 Census is available from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) 2011 Census homepage.
