Census 2021

England  Wales & Northern Ireland are going ahead this years  Census on 21st March with a new range of questions

Scotland's next Census is to be moved to March 2022

A good idea I think

Re: Census 2012

@HelloDuck According to your topic title, we had one 9 years ago.🤣

Will be interesting to see which of these 'new' questions will get a N/A or decline to answer response.

Why is Scotland's moving - I always thought they were still part of the UK, despite Wee Krankie?

What is 'a good idea'?

Re: Census 2012

Why change Scotland to 2022, though - I can't think of any reason?

Re: Census 2012

Perhaps Wee Krankie's hoping to have independence sorted by then @jab1 Cheesy

Re: Census 2012

Just as important for those like myself interested in family history is the 1921 Census for England, Wales and Scotland which will be released in its entirety in less than a year from now.

As for the one to be completed this year it's going to be interesting to see how politically correct those questions have become with regards to race, gender and ethnicity.

@Minivanman Those (and others, no doubt) are what I was thinking about.

@jab1 

Indeed yes, just read your post again. 🙂

Regarding the one for Scotland, that has been delayed until next year because of Covid according the the link below.

Re: Census 2012

So Scotland, unlike England, Wales & NI are too weak or incompetent to arrange the Census, even though, presumably, other mail is getting through? I'll read you link in a bit - multi-tasking atm 😁

Re: Census 2012

I always remember some-one coming to our flat in my bachelor days to do a survey. It went like this:

How many live here? - Two.

How many cars do you have? - Five. Then after the scribbling ended - but only one works.

Do you have a TV? - Yes, four. More scribbling then - but none of them work.

The guy doing the survey lost interest and left. He thought we were winding him up, we weren't!

Re: Census 2012

Cherish it. It could be the last. TBH ten years is a long time in our rapidly mobile society. Would any, say, planning research, really ever be  done using such stale data?

Afterthought; now I know why they built them there.Roll_eyesCrazy

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Even weirder - the Scottish one was going to be online - how the blazes can CV19 affect that - or am I missing something blindingly obvious?
