Completing the census : Why have I received a warning letter?

Now Census Day has passed, we've been sending letters to everyone who hasn’t returned their census. It’s important we all take part.

If you've received a letter with a warning, you should fill in your form and return it as soon as you can. Remember to answer about your household as it was on Sunday 21 March.

If you do not fill in the census after you've received a warning letter, you may be visited by officers from our Non-Compliance team. They will encourage you to fill in your form and will help you access any support you need to complete your census. They may also ask to enter the property to help you fill in your form or record your reasoning behind not completing the census.

I’ve already completed my form

If you’ve received a letter but have already completed your form, we apologise for contacting you. Please ignore the letter.
