No there’s just the word last missing. Last census.
Oh yeah right, I understand!
Remember my mum getting very angry at me for insisting on putting Jedi down as my religion on 2001 census. Take that, mum! You’re not the census police!!
I gave you my heart
Once bitten but twice shy
Asked your religion and you put down “Jedi”
Better not be paper only though, no way am I filling in a paper application for something for free.
Genuinely quite interested to see if the census data shows that my (rural) neighborhood has been gentrified. I really think it has but hard to find anyone who wants to talk about it and hard to prove.
might become a sovereign citizen and refuse to fill it.
i mean, i don’t think i’ll need to anyway since i don’t live in the uk but still.
THE UK CENSUS IS NOT A COURT OF LAW AND HAS NO JURISDICTION OVER ME.
1991 - Mum filled it out probably.
2001 - Mum filled it out for sure. It was talked about a lot at school and we did a school one for fun. My moddies* teacher was shitting herself over it.
2011 - I was living in Texas and missed it. As such there will be a 20 year gap where my future grandkids will have no clue where I was. Take that, FUCKOS.
2021 - will be filling it out my my wife and two childs so that’s a good leap.
Looking forward to 2091 so I can find out what my mum wrote in it.
*moddies is modern studies, a fucking joke of a subject that was taught by a hapless teacher who knew they were rubbish
Scotland’s is 2022. Not 2021.
That fucks everything.
Don’t go to the twitter page it’s full of TERFs annoyed that the question is simply MALE/FEMALE that is self ID only. No “born at birth” question. Also No “nonbinary” option either I note.
so I think I’ve already got my letter for this but my housemate is moving out in 3 days… ‘does anyone else live here?’ yes. for three more days.
should i just wait and do it after she’s moved out?
You have to it on the 21st March only right?
Ah ok it’s not the census, it’s this: Be counted - Office for National Statistics
I’m just going to fill it in once she’s moved out, it’ll be easier.
If the whole point is that it’s a snapshot of the day of the census then you should do it accurately for that day, otherwise there’ll be omissions/duplications
* just saw your second post do you can ignore this
Is it time for another exciting DiS Census to coincide?
- Boy is it?!
- Boy isn’t it?!
A load of my friends who have lost their jobs for Covid reasons are in this boat, and for that reason I am very pro Census. Some of them are completely unsuited to this sort of work and will probably do a bad job so I won’t put much stock in the results. Nonetheless, Viva Census!
It might take a few years for the data to be crunched, but people at places like CASA will start to churn out maps and analysis on it. They definitely did it for 2011:
Because this is my line of work, I’m genuinely unironically massively excited about this!
