2021 Census – Changing from paper to digital – April 2020
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. The information provided helps to build a picture of who we are and how we live, giving information about our society and future needs.
Historically the census has always been a paper-based document sent to all households, however 2021 will see the “digital-first” census.
The Good Things Foundation is working with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to build a network of Census Online Support Centres who can support people to complete the census online, ensuring everyone has the chance to complete the census digitally.
