As part of our preparations for Census 2021, we’ve run two census tests and a rehearsal. These have provided us with an important opportunity to test our processes, systems and services so we can make sure the real thing goes smoothly.
We ran a census rehearsal in Carlisle, Ceredigion, Hackney and Tower Hamlets in autumn 2019.
In spring 2017, we held a large-scale test in several parts of the country in preparation for the next census.
In July 2016, we held a small online test in Telford and the Wrekin.
