The 2011 Census day was Sunday 27th March 2011.
What is a census?
A census is held every ten years and is a survey of all people and households in the country. It provides essential information from national to neighbourhood level for government, business, and the community. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) manages the census in England and Wales.
Why is it so important?
Facts and figures collected from the census help
determine how millions of pounds are spent on public services across
Leicester and elsewhere. As Leicester's future funding is at stake, it's crucial we get accurate information on everyone living in the city.
Your personal details are not released for 100 years and all information is treated in strictest confidence. ONS only uses your personal information for the census and nothing else. They won't share it with other government departments or agencies.
