the 2011 census is coming!

click to go to the 2011 Census HomepageOn 27 March 2011 all residential households in the United Kingdom will be taking part in a census. It's not just another survey. The census not only provides an excellent source of information about the population but enables central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to plan housing, education, health and transport services for years to come. The census statistics feed into resource allocation for local authorities and play a major part in their ability to provide local services, so it is crucial the population estimate is as accurate as possible.

click to go to Census Family HistoryThe Census is completely confidential and no personal information is passed to other government departments or non governmental organisations. When the questionnaire envelope comes through the door you’ll easily recognise it by the purple 2011 Census logo (above left). Take care of it. If, like many people, you want to complete the questionnaire online, your individual internet code is on the front of the questionnaire.

click to look for Census JobsThe National Census will also be creating around 150 jobs in Cambridge City and South Cambs. These are all temporary but range from a few weeks to month, part time and full time all with competitive rates of pay . Details can be found at
