Census information day to be held in Norwich
People will be able to find out about this year's Census at an event in The Forum in Norwich on Friday (February 25).
Census day is March 27, where people are expected, by law, to complete either an online version of a questionnaire or fill in a paper questionnaire.
It will be delivered to households and people can return it by post in the pre-paid envelope provided, as soon as possible after the 27th.
The census takes place every ten years, to provide a high quality estimate of the population - counting all people and households in England and Wales.
It is planned and carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The information collected on the questionnaires is used to help government and local authorities plan the services and resources people need, such as transport, housing, healthcare and education.
