Why we ask this question

Your answer helps us to make sure we haven't missed anyone. If your visitors live elsewhere in the UK it's important that they fill in a form for their usual address too. If they don't, they will be missed from their area's population numbers, which affects how much money their local authority receives from the government. By including your visitors, you're helping us to make sure that the population counts for their local authority are as accurate as we can make them.

Visitors from Scotland will be able to fill in their census forms during Scotland's Census in 2022.

The census has asked for details of everyone staying in a household on Census Day, including visitors, since 1841.

Please select either "Female" or "Male".

When answering on behalf of someone else, where possible you should ask them how they want to answer. If it's not possible to ask them, please select the answer you think they would choose.

Your answers are confidential

We use the information we collect in the census solely to produce statistics and for statistical research. No one will use your personal information to sell you anything or find you, and government staff that directly serve the public cannot see it.
