Question development

Information on the work to determine the questions in the 2021 Census.

We are developing the questions to be included in the 2021 Census questionnaire. Learn about our research and testing here.

Help inform the next Census

A short survey to test possible new questions for the 2021 Census was conducted on our behalf by Ipsos MORI between late June and mid-August. It involved a number of households across Northern Ireland being contacted.

The survey is now complete.

We would like to thank everyone who completed this survey.

Testing is an important part of our preparations for the next census and we are grateful for your time and your help.
