Census 2021 - Ensuring we #CountCarers in on 21st March 2021.
The census is taking place on Sunday, 21st March, 2021, and we want to ensure that everone looking after someone else identifies as an unpaid carer when completing their form. This is hugely important because the census provides a vital opportunity for the number of carers, and their caring situations, to be officially recognised and better understood.
Census 2021 will inform decisions on services that shape our communities, such as healthcare, education and transport, and it also provides a more accurate and up to date figure for the number of carers in the UK.
Census findings are used widely by national and local government and many others - including national and local carers organisations. The opportunity to complete the census only comes around once every 10 years in England and Wales and these figures will provide avery important update.
There is a specific question (question 24 in England and Wales) which asks whether you look after, or give help or support to someone else - and the number of hoursper week that you care for.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous. Census 2021 will be the first digital-first census. You will receive information from the ONS about filling in the census, but if you need help or have any questions, visit www.census.gov.uk.
