The Census will take place on Sunday 21st March 2021.
HOW DOES IT AFFECT US AS AN INDIAN COMMUNITY?
The Census is an opportunity for our answers as a community to be counted, so that our needs can be met.
Amongst the various questions, the Census asks you to describe your Nationality, Ethnicity, and Religion. These questions are of particular importance to us as a community and as Hindus living in the UK.
HOW TO COMPLETE CENSUS 2021:
This year, for the first time, the Census will be an online form. This can be accessed via your mobile phone, laptop/computer, or iPad.
From the beginning of March, every household will receive a Census Invitation Pack with a Unique Household Code which will be required when completing the online Census.
Once you receive your unique code, you can begin to complete the Census questionnaire. You do not have to wait until 21st March to access the online Census questionnaire. You should complete the Census questionnaire as accurately as possible.
Should you require any support to complete the Census (language support, paper questionnaire or have any queries) further information can be found within the Census invitation pack.
Do not share your unique code with anyone outside of your household, except for:
- family & friends who may help you complete the form.
- Public Contact Centre.
- Census Support Centres.
ONS staff will not ask for payment for any information they give, nor for helping to complete the questionnaire.
