The Census is a count of all people and households in the UK and is normally taken every ten years. It provides essential statistical information, enabling the planning and monitoring of public services including schools, health services, roads and libraries. Results are also available for research and education purposes. Information is available from the UK level down to small geographical areas.

The latest Census took place on 29 April 2001 and forms are currently being scanned and coded. It is aimed that the first results from the 2001 Census will be available from August 2002, with the main results being released between December 2002 and Summer 2003. Statistics from 1991 and earlier censuses are available from census customer services.

Copies of the forms used for the 2001 Census can be viewed by clicking on the icon on the left.
