Census 2021 in Wychavon
With 21st March fast approaching, Census 2021 is in full swing in the Wychavon District.
Letters with unique access codes have been sent out to residents across the district and responses are already being sent in.
Residents are required by law to complete the census on Sunday, 21st March or as soon as possible after. There is a risk of a £1,000 fine if not completed.
A completed questionnaire can be submitted before this date if it is known who will be in the household on that day.
Field officers will be sent out across the country (operating in line with the Government’s latest Covid-19 guidance) to contact those who have not responded. They will also offer help and advice to those who need it.
The questionnaire includes questions about age, sex, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity.
For the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Results will be available within twelve months, although personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.
