About the census : Census 2021 outputs consultation

The Census 2021 outputs consultation is now closed. It ran from 13 July 2021 until 5 October 2021. This public consultation was to share our proposals at the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for Census 2021 outputs, for England and Wales. It covered our proposals for what we're planning to include in our Census 2021 data products and analysis, as well as the different phases of the Census 2021 outputs release schedule.

The feedback from the consultation helps us consider new and emerging user needs for Census 2021 data when developing our products and analysis.
