Do you know that all households in England and Wales are currently completing the Census 2021? This is a once every 10-year survey of every person in the country and a mammoth undertaking for all involved. It is compulsory for all households to complete the survey and the deadline for this is fast approaching on 21st March 2021. The impacts of each census can be seen for many years later and directly influence both National and Local Government spending decisions on things from housing, schooling, road building and many other things.

In recognition of the importance of the Census 2021, the Mathematics department would like to present a mini Census activity for the pupils to try out for themselves to get an understanding of how it works and what it is used for.
If you think you have correctly used the “Statistopia” Census and made the correct decisions, then email your results to firstname.lastname@example.org. First to do so will win a prize!
Good luck and remind your parents that there is a fine of up to £1000 for not completing the government Census on time.
