21st March: The Census is coming to Croydon – are you ready?
It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a decade since the last Census survey was carried out across England and Wales, and households across Croydon will soon have information about the next Census posted through their letterboxes.
The 2021 Census takes place on the 21st March and will be the first to be predominantly run online. The information gathered will give a better understanding of community needs and help inform how services like health centres, schools and transport are planned and funded.
We know the 2011 Census found that Croydon was increasing in population size and its diversity, and we hope the 2021 Census will give us an updated picture of what’s changed and what our borough now looks like.
If you’d like to find out more, you can visit the website at www.census.gov.uk or get in touch with me, Dianne Jones your local Census Engagement Manager. Read more in the leaflet here.
