Run by the Office for National Statistics, the census is a once-in-a-decade survey that helps provide a unique snapshot of the society we live in.
The most recent Census took place in spring 2021 and the information you gave will help all kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, to help plan and provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare.
