Have you filled in your census return yet? All households should complete the census on Sunday 21 March 2021. I checked my answers carefully – it would be a bit embarrassing, given my job, if I had got it wrong wouldn’t it?

I think that many people’s answers will be a bit different to normal due to the Covid restrictions. There will surely be a lot less people staying away from home on census night this time, the lockdown means that we are all far less likely to be anywhere other than our own homes, and we are also unlikely to have any visitors staying with us at the moment.
