As previously reported on this discussion list, the next census in England
and Wales will be in 2021. As part of the census research program, the
Office for National Statistics (ONS) launched on 4 June a 12 week public
consultation asking users for their views on the topics that the 2021
Census might include. ONS wants to determine the information that users want
and need >from the 2021 Census, and which data will in future be needed for
policy, business, and administrative purposes within the public and private
sectors.

ONS is encouraging people to respond online to their current proposals:

More information on the topic consultation, including a PDF of the
"Initial View on Content for England and Wales", is available at:

Anyone can take part in the public consultation which closes on Thursday
27 August and users' feedback will inform further research, development of
questions, and other engagement activities.
