Households across East Suffolk are being asked to take part in Census 2021.
Census day is on Sunday 21 March, but households will now be receiving letters with online codes explaining how they can complete their forms. If you don’t get one in the next couple of weeks, please get in touch with the census contact centre. You can also request a paper questionnaire if you’d prefer to complete your census that way.
Local census support centres will be open while the census is happening. Staff will offer help for people not confident online, who don’t have a computer or need help completing on paper.
There are two dedicated Census Support Centres in East Suffolk – one at the Marina Centre in Lowestoft which will be operated by staff from East Suffolk Council's Customer Services team, and one at the Station House in Campsea Ashe, operated by the social enterprise there. These centres will not be open to the public to visit but can offer help with completing your census form over the telephone and can answer general enquiries.
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
