The Scottish Census will now take place in March 2022, after being delayed due to Covid-19. The survey of the entire population normally takes place every 10 years in the second year of the decade. The last census happened in 2011. Information gathered provides government and councils with information on Scottish households which helps decisions to be made on services. In Scotland, the National Records of Scotland (NRS) is responsible for the census.

Information about the census can be found here:

Further communications will be sent out shortly.  We would appreciate your support to ensure that all households are encouraged to participate and that there is help available in your local area for those who may require help to complete the survey.
