census questionnaires will be delivered by Sunday March 27.
These can be filled in as soon as they arrive provided answers cover the people living or staying with you on the night of March 27.
It is very important to include everyone in your household because the census results are used to help to target and deliver billions of pounds worth of services such as education and transport, and business investment.
