Public Consultation Launched for the 2021 Census

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 16:15


The Office for National Statistics is already planning the 2021 Census. As part of this, they have launched a public consultation which is open to everyone. You can respond as an individual or on behalf of an organisation and can give your feedback until 27 August.

Taking part is easy – background information and guidance, current proposals, and your opportunity to give feedback are all in one place. You can comment on all suggested topics, or just one. Or tell them about what they’ve missed.

A lot changes in the 10 years between each census. Our society is constantly evolving and the information that users want from the census needs to change too. This is why public feedback is so important.

Why They Are Consulting

“Decisions based on the census can touch the lives of all of us. Individuals and organisations alike are able to make better decisions based on the unique and reliable evidence base that the census provides. But we can't run this major project alone. We need the help of census users to ensure that the census stays relevant and credible. So do please take the time to share your views through this consultation. Together we can make sure we understand as much as we need to about the population in 2021."

John Pullinger, National Statistician


ONS experts will be holding regional roadshow meetings in Newcastle (22 June), Birmingham (23 June), Cardiff (24 June) and London (25 June). Further details will be publicised on the ONS website.
