Sent on behalf of National Statistics:
The first results from Census 2021 in England and Wales will be released on 28 June. The population and household estimates from the decennial survey will guide the planning of local and national services we all rely on. But they are just the first brushstrokes of the detailed picture of the nation we will paint over coming months and years, a picture which will get richer and more detailed as we go. Here Jen Woolford explains what you can expect from the first results and how we have reached this stage.
Delivering a census is a mammoth operation. More than 20 million households across England and Wales completed their questionnaires in spring last year. Turning that information into the best possible statistics for every local area is an equally big challenge.
