Previous news

On 31 January 2022, we published the Census 2021 outputs prospectus. It describes our release plans for Census 2021 statistics in Northern Ireland and lays out when Census Office intends to publish them. The prospectus is dynamic and Census Office will update the content as more information becomes available.

We also published the Census 2021 operational report (PDF 943KB). This document is a factual account of how the census was conducted and sets out a record of key elements associated with the operational delivery.
