Scotland’s next census will be held in March 2022, conducted by the National Records of Scotland (NRS).
As this census will be a digital first census, NRS is encouraging as many households in Scotland as possible to complete it online.
They are holding a series of online events, via Teams, on different themes for local groups and organisations, with information on how the census will be delivered, and how they can support people to ensure they can take part in the census.
Each event will last no longer than 30 minutes, and people are welcome to attend more than one. There will also be time for a Q & A session at the end of each event, and live captions will be available.
