Households across Oxfordshire will be asked to take part in Census 2021 this spring.

The Census, run by the Office for National Statistics, 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 ten years since 1801, with the exception of 1941.

This year, for the first time, the Census will be digital first. All households will receive a letter in early March with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on 21 March on their computers, phones or tablets. For some of our residents, this will make things easier, but we understand that for others it could be challenging.

The Census team covering Oxfordshire would like to understand as soon as possible your communities and key groups that may need support, local community groups who already provide help, local resources that could be used to support Census promotion/ engagement, and where there could be risks, so it can meet the needs of your communities with alternative or adjusted arrangements.

To help facilitate this, we'd be very grateful if you could complete this simple survey

Please aim to complete the survey by 4 January 2021
