Census 2021 will provide a snapshot of modern society
Households across Ribble Valley will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.
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. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.
“A successful census will ensure everyone from local government to charities can put services and funding in the places where they are most needed,” Iain Bell, deputy national statistician at the Office for National Statistics, said.
“This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, schools and new transport routes. That’s why it is so important everyone takes part and we have made it easier for people to do so online on any device, with help and paper questionnaires for those that need them.”
Census day will be on March 21, but households across the country will receive letters with online codes allowing them to take part from early March.
The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. And, for the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Results will be available within 12 months, although personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.

The Economic Crime Unit at Lancashire Police would like to make you aware of a video in relation to Impersonation Fraud.
Impersonation Fraud is when a fraudster contacts a victim impersonating professional people such as The Police, HMRC or The Bank. The fraudster will then convince the victim that their money is under attack, or that they owe money and payment is needed. Victims will then send the money away, purchase items or go into a bank and withdraw the money and send to the fraudster via a courier, never to be seen again.
The Bank, The Police and HMRC will never contact you asking you to pay outstanding debt, or to withdraw money and send to a safe account. Please click on the link below or copy it into your web browser to watch the video which has been produced by The Metropolitan Police Service
