Question ref. S6W-07861
Asked by: Alex Rowley, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 5 April 2022


To ask the Scottish Government what the completion rate has been to date of Scotland's Census 2022, and whether it is taking any further action to increase uptake.

Current status: Answered by Angus Robertson on 4 May 2022


As of 4 May, 2,108,468 households in Scotland have successfully submitted their response to Scotland's Census 2022.

It is essential we maximise participation and ensure that everyone is heard and their needs captured. That is why the census online completion site remains open and support through both the free helpline (0800 030 8308) and field teams will remain in place.

National Records of Scotland will also continue to accept paper returns for this short extension period - until end May.
