Census 2011

A census is a count of the population. We have had one in the UK every ten years to find out more about who we are as a nation. Everyone is asked to tell a bit about themselves to help census users decide how best to plan and deliver the everyday services we all need – like housing, education, healthcare and transport. You are required by law to complete the census.

The last census took place on 27 March 2011.

Why should this matter?

Like all local authorities in England and Wales, Allerdale Borough Council relies on census population statistics to get the government funding we need for public services. How much we get is directly related to how many and what kind of people the census shows live in our area. So even if the census were to end up just a few households short, it could make a very real difference to people’s lives. The census needs to include everyone, everywhere – and that’s why everyone has to take part.
