Census 2011 - Helping tomorrow take shape

 

 

censusA census is a count of all people and households and provides a detailed local and national picture of society to help target funds and plan local services.

 

Census Day

 

Every ten years the Office for National Statistics (ONS) carries out a census to find out more about the people who live in England and Wales, and about the make-up of local neighbourhoods. Census day was Sunday 27 March 2011. ONS sent out over 25 million questionnaires to households to complete.

 

The census asks about work, health, national identity, citizenship, ethnic background, education, second homes, language, religion, marital status and so on. These statistics are then used to build a picture of today’s society.

 

Why should this matter?

 

Like all local authorities in England and Wales, South Staffordshire Council relies on census population statistics to get the government funding we need for public services. How much we get is directly related to how many and what kind of people the census says live in our area. So even if the census were to end up just a few households short, it could make a very real difference to people’s lives. The census needs to include everyone, everywhere – and that’s why everyone has to take part.
