Have you got your census letter?

Households across Wrexham are being asked to take part in Census 2021.

Census day is on March 21, but households will now be receiving letters with online codes explaining how they can complete their forms. If you don’t get one in the next couple of weeks, please get in touch with the census contact centre. You can also request a paper questionnaire if you’d prefer to complete your census that way.

Local census support centres will be open while the census is happening if it is safe to do so and restrictions allow. Staff will offer help for people not confident online, who don’t have a computer or need help completing on paper. We are keen to open these as soon as it is possible to do so safely. We will provide further details of this closer to the time.

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.

Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said: “We are working with the Office for National Statistics to encourage a high participation rate in Census 2021. Nothing else gives so much detail about the society in which we live, helping to make decisions with the potential to transform lives for the better. We strongly encourage Wrexham residents to take part.”
