Census day is peeping over the horizon. Letters telling you about the census should soon start to drop on doormats. An advance card will arrive first, explaining that the census is taking place on Sunday, March 21. Every household will then be sent a letter with a digital access code. This code will let you fill out the questionnaire online. This is a digital first census. The hope is that most people will go online. You will be able to complete the questionnaire on your tablet, smartphone or computer. This shouldn’t be difficult and everything has been made as straightforward as possible.
