The census is a survey that happens ten years and provides a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales.

The next one takes place this Sunday (March 21).

Residents should have received an invitation pack in the post.

This includes a 16-character access code which can be used to fill in the census as soon as you get it.

Once residents have their access code, they can visit the census website and fill out their census digitally, or it is also possible to request a paper census questionnaire to be sent in the post.

Councillor Neil Parkin, leader of Adur District Council, said: “Your answers to the census questions help organisations make planning and funding decisions across Adur and Worthing, including areas such as transport, education and healthcare.”

Cllr Daniel Humphreys, leader of Worthing Borough Council, added: “The census won’t take you long to fill in, it should take you about 10 minutes for the household questions and 10 minutes per person. It’s really important that we all play our part and fill in the census, so please look out for your invitation pack and complete your form as soon as you can.”
