Get an access code or paper census
To start your census online, you will need your access code printed on the letter we sent you.
If you don’t have an access code
You can request a new access code to start a new census if you have lost or not received an access code. This can be sent to you by text to your UK mobile number or by post. If you don't have a UK mobile number you can contact us for help.
A new access code will start a new census, and you will lose any answers entered using a previous access code.
If you need to answer separately from the people you live with, you can complete your own census.
Someone in your household must still complete a census using a household access code
If you want to fill out a paper census
You can request a paper census questionnaire to be sent in the post.
If you already have a paper questionnaire and there are more than 5 people in your household, you will need to request a continuation questionnaire.
