Have you got your census letter?

Households across Wirral are being asked to take part in Census 2021.

Census day is on March 21, 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.

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. 

For more information, and to find out how to get help, visit census.gov.uk or call the contact centre on 0800 141 2021. 

Residents across the borough, from West Kirby to Wallasey and Birkenhead to Bromborough are being asked to take part in Census 2021
