Census 2021 will be key to making sure the big decisions on the future of our public services, following the pandemic and EU exit, are based on the best information possible.

Letters are now arriving in the post to every household in Birmingham inviting people to take part in the digital-first census.

This census will not only provide a fresh picture of the size of all the communities in Birmingham, it will also shed light on the health, social and economic changes to our lives.

Run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the census – taking place on March 21 - is the once-in-a-decade survey that gives the most accurate
estimate of all people and households in England and Wales.

“In light of the coronavirus pandemic, we need this up-to-date information to help shape vital services for the years to come more urgently than ever before and we are making sure everyone can be safely counted in line with all government guidance,” said Census Director of Operations Pete Benton.

“We have made it simple, straightforward and safe to take part. It takes just 10 minutes per person to fill out your form and if you can’t get online, there are paper forms available for those who need them, as well as lots of support. Now is the time to make your mark on history.”
