The Census happens every 10 years and provides a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. It aims to count all people and households at the same time, allowing comparison between different areas of the country and different groups of people.

The information from the Census enables central and local government to more effectively target resources and plan service delivery.

The Census has been carried out every 10 years since 1801, with the exception of 1941. The most recent Census was held on 21 March 2021.
