Start your paper census

Follow the instructions on the paper form to help you fill it in. There are instructions on page two of the form and in the leaflet that came with it.

If you're helping someone else to fill in their paper form, see tips for filling in on paper.

I've received more than one form. Which do I use?

  • You can use either form. It would be helpful if you could contact us to let us know you’ve received more than one form at your address, so we can amend our records.
  • If the addresses are the same, it's up to you which one you use - otherwise use the form with the most accurate address.
  • You can then recycle any spare forms, but remember to remove the front page with your details on first.

The address on my form is wrong

Please write your correct address in the space provided on the front of the form. There are instructions on how to do this. Then answer the questions and return the completed form to us in the prepaid envelope provided.
