## Census 2022

For more than 200 years Scotland has used the data the census provides, and it remains the best way to gather vital information about Scotland's people which local and central government, the NHS and a range of other data users in the public, private and third sectors need.

Scotland's Census 2022 was launched on 28 February 2022 with a call for households across Scotland to complete their return. Census Day was 20 March 2022, but households could complete their return from 28 February, on the understanding that responses should reflect their circumstances on Census Day. For the first time Census returns could be made online with paper questionnaires available for those who wished to use them. There has been a census in Scotland every 10 years since 1801, except 1941. The 2021 census in Scotland was moved to 2022 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Census asks questions on a range of topics, including the types of accommodation people stay in, household relationships, age, sex, health and employment status. New questions for the 2022 census included use of British Sign Language (BSL), passports held, sexual orientation, trans status and previous armed forces service history.
