H2. Counting everyone you included in question H1, how many people usually live here?

Why we ask this question

The information you give helps us work out the total number of people in your area and where they're living. This will help local and central government provide the right services for your community.

We ask people to tell us about empty houses and holiday homes so we can work out how many people are living in housing. This information will help your local authority understand how much housing they have and how much your community may need in the future.

The census first asked these questions in 1931.

Give the number of people who usually live at this address. Count everyone you included in your previous answer (H1). Remember to only count each person once.

Don't count visitors who were staying at this address overnight on Sunday 21 March 2021. Visitors are people who usually live elsewhere. You will be able to record them in questions H4 and H5.

If no one lives here, enter "0".
