The Census is the largest single survey of the UK population.
The Census aims to count all people and households at the same time. By asking a core set of questions it allows comparison between different areas and different groups of people.
The information from the Census enables central and local government to target resources and plan service provision more effectively. It also provides a broad range of demographic, social and economic statistics for use by other public services, the business and academic sectors, and the community.
