Census day was yesterday 27th March, and it’s now time to send in your Census questionnaire to help bring funding to Birmingham. Census results are turned into anonymous statistics and used to fund and plan local services such as transport, healthcare and education.
Activities took place across Birmingham on Census weekend in locations including Star City, Aston Library, Saltley, Bordesley Green and the city centre. The Census team were on hand to answer questions and give advice as well as offer language interpretation support.
Residents are urged to send their forms in, either on paper or online, as quickly as possible to avoid being visited by Office for National Statistics (ONS) Census Collectors.
For lost or missing forms, or for extra help and advice call 0300 0201 101 or visit www.census.gov.uk.
Where forms have not been returned by next week census officials will be making door-to-door visits to collect the forms or help households fill in new ones.
It is a legal obligation that a census return is completed for every household in the country.
A full list of census support and advice sessions in Birmingham, with language interpretation, is available on www.Birmingham.gov.uk/censusdropin
