241. The Census 2021

Description

This Sociology Factsheet will look at the census, a national survey that occurs every 10 years and gives a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. It will examine the way the census is conducted and will outline some of the changes in the census since it began in 1801. It will also look at how the 2021 census was developed and conducted.

The Factsheet includes Exam Hints to help you to use your knowledge to gain maximum marks, while the Activities give you the opportunity to apply what you have learned and will help you develop your skills in this area.

Words in bold are explained in the glossary and a reference list is included at the end of the Factsheet.

The examiner will expect you to be able to use contemporary examples, such as the census when:

  • Demonstrating your understanding of surveys.
  • Explaining why surveys, such as the census are important.
  • Demonstrating your understanding of how the information from surveys is used.
  • Evaluating the use of the census within contemporary UK society.
