The decennial census is almost upon us.
Households across Cheshire West and Chester will soon be asked to take part in the nationwide survey of housing and the population.
It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
Information from the digital-first census will help decide how services are planned and funded in your local area.
This could mean things like doctors' surgeries, housing or new bus routes.
Households will receive a letter with a unique access code in the post, allowing them to complete their questionnaire online.
Paper questionnaires will be available on request.
Census day is March 21.
