About the Census Coverage Survey

The Census Coverage Survey (CCS) is a small survey undertaken shortly after the census which helps us to assess if any people have been missed.

The CCS has now closed, thank you to everyone who has taken part.

The CCS asked similar questions to those on the census questionnaire, just fewer of them. It was carried out after the completion of the main census field work in a sample of areas across Northern Ireland.

The information collected from the CCS will be used to decide if adjustments are required to the census statistics. This is all to make sure the information produced is as accurate as possible for planning services such as health, education, housing and transport.

What to do if you were invited to take part

If we left you a paper questionnaire, you no longer need to complete it.
