Why we have a Census?

The Census happens every ten years and is a survey of the whole population. The last Census of England and Wales was held on 27th March 2011.  It captures a breadth of information which can be used to help target resources more efficiently and inform policy-making.

For more information about the Census please visit the Office of National Statistics website
