Digital-first census for 2021

Scotland’s Census 2021 will be the first primarily online census held in the country, according to new proposals published today. ‘Plans for Scotland’s Census 2021’,  by National Records of Scotland, lays out proposals for how the census will be conducted and the questions it will ask.
For the first time in 2021, people will be encouraged to fill out their questionnaire primarily online, with support and help available for those who need it.

Under the proposals, the census would also include questions on:

Religion Question and Outputs Survey

Do you use religion data from Scotland's Census? Can you help us in the development of outputs from the religion question for Scotland's Census 2021? 

We are looking for a variety of people who use census religion data or are from religious groups and denominations to complete this short survey 

We would like to capture information about your requirements from the 2021 census, and we are looking for contacts who are willing to work with us on the design of the religion outputs for 2021 (which may involve grouping some denominations together in some outputs).
