NISRA has announced that a rehearsal of the 2021 Census will take place in 3 areas across Northern Ireland in October 2019.
The areas that have been selected for the rehearsal are:
- South and East Belfast (7,300 households)
- Craigavon (7,200 households)
- West Fermanagh (4,300 households)
The rehearsal is a really important part of the planning for the 2021 Census as it will test that the processes, systems and services are effective and working as they should in advance of the census.
If you live within one of the 3 areas, NISRA will write to you in advance of the rehearsal giving you more information and explain how you can complete your census questionnaire.
