National Census and the Chinese Community


The National Census 2021 has released information to the Chinese community to help us engage and participate.


What is the census?

  • The largest national survey that happens every 10 years and everyone takes part.

  • The ONS is responsible for the census in England and Wales.

  • The census is important because it gives the most detailed information we have about our society.

  • Scotland and Northern Ireland hold their own around the same time.

Keeping personal information safe

  • Before we publish our statistics, we make sure that they don’t include any personal information.

  • The information we collect in the census remains anonymous for 100 years.

  • Everyone must complete the census. Legislation made the modern census a legal obligation in 1920.

Why we have a census

The census provides information that government needs to:

  • Shape policy

  • Allocate resources

  • Plan services

  • Monitor equality

Census information informs decisions that improve lives

Planning and development - Census information is used to develop local plans to better reflect future needs and to identify inequalities at a very local level.

Public health and social care- Census information is used to inform service demand, to identify pockets of health deprivation and to support future care planning.

Housing - Census information is used to assess local housing needs and to measure housing affordability.


Census information informs decisions that improve lives

Education - Census information is used for pupil forecasting models, to inform capital

bids and to monitor the supply of qualified persons.

Transport - Census information is used for funding bids for road improvements, and informs planning and profiles around areas of transport change.

Other - Census information is used to inform emergency services, libraries and waste collection and disposal.
