2. What is your date of birth?

Why we ask this question

Your answer helps your community by providing information about the age of the people in your area. Your local authority can then work out whether they need to offer different resources and services to help different groups of people. For example, children have different needs compared with older people.

This information helps monitor equality between different groups of people of different age groups. Your answer will help public bodies to identify discrimination or social exclusion based on age and work to stop it from happening.

A question about age was first asked in 1821.

Please enter the date you were born.

Example: 25 05 2000

If you don't know your date of birth, please estimate it as best you can.
