NEW FERRY IS COUNTING ON YOU!


12 March 2011 

In March 2011 all residential households in the UK will take part in a Census, run by Office for National Statistics. A Census has been held every ten years since 1801 (except in 1941 during the war). The Census provides an excellent source of information about the population, and enables central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to identify need for housing, education, health and transport services for years to come.

The uses of Census statistics are varied from tracing our family trees, to being used by supermarkets to determine where to site a new store and what stock to sell! Here in New Ferry, for instance, our local Fire Brigade and Police have used Census data to help our communities, putting home safety fire checks, fire alarms and crime prevention measures in place. The benefits are far reaching.

Importantly, Census statistics also feed into the allocation of funding for local authorities and play a major part in identifying need for local services in communities, so it is crucial the population estimate is as accurate as possible. It's compulsory to complete a Census return we all need to also make sure figures regarding our population and communities in New Ferry are accurate, and that our local council can then consider fully the services needed for our area.

If you need help, please call Census Helpline on 0300 0201 101 or go online www.2011.census.gov.uk, or contact our local Census Area Coordinator for New Ferry, Gail Tanner, on 07557 190436
