The census is a national survey that happens every 10 years and gives the Office for National Statistics (ONS) a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The next census takes place on Sunday 21 March 2021.
The census asks questions about you, your household and your home. In doing so, it helps to build a detailed snapshot of different areas like Penge. Information from the census helps the government and councils to plan and fund local services, such as education, doctors’ surgeries and roads.
Census 2021 is a digital-first census, which means that the ONS will be encouraging people to respond online if they can. You will be able to complete the census using any device, including your mobile phone or tablet.
If you need help to complete it, there is an online help area on the census website and they offer help by phone, webchat, email, social media or text message. For help you can follow this link: https://census.gov.uk/help
