Census 2011

The 2011 Census will be taking place on 27 March 2011. Statistics obtained from a Census improve the understanding of people’s needs. Government and local authorities in England and Wales depend on this information to help ensure that citizens get the services they need in their community.

Scotland will be having a separate census, which will also be taking place on 27 March 2011.

The ONS will be distributing questionnaires in March to around 25 million households. The survey will cover questions ranging from information about work, health, national identity, citizenship, ethnic background, education, second homes, language, marital status and so on.

It is vital that carers fill the Census 2011 as it will also inquire about carers and cared for. All information provided will be kept in strictest confidence and will only be used to produce statistics. The answers will be turned into statistics used to build a picture of today’s society.

The questionnaire is available for you to download and fill at http://www.census.gov.uk/

It’s simple. If the census cannot see you, the organisations responsible for delivering the services you need will not be able to see you either.

Now that is odd. Why would a peoples democracy have the colour royal purple on their census and what is with that royal coat of arms. Ever thought that some one has been dishonest? Didn't the majority(57%) of the UK say NO to the invasion of Iraq 2003. Questions have to be asked. like Who is who and who are they
