Census Day

Today is Census Day and you should have already received your 2011 Census form through the post.

The census is very important to Brent Council and our partner organisations such as the NHS, as much of the funding we receive from central government is directly dependent on how many people are counted in the census.

It helps us understand the needs of our residents and we use this information to ensure that we are providing the best possible service.  Put simply, the higher the population count, the more funding we will receive and the less services we will need to cut. The better we can also ensure that we can plan for school places in the future and be properly funded by Government and our children do not lose out on resources. It is in everyone’s interest to help.

All the information you give is confidential and protected by law. This means your answers will only be used for the census survey and no other reason. Personal information is not shared with anyone. There are no questions on sexuality or income, and the question on religion is voluntary.

You can fill in the forms online or by post. If you have any questions or need help filling in your form call Office for National Statistics on 0300 0201 101 or go to www.census.gov.uk
