Census 2016

Census 2016This is a gentle reminder that SUNDAY 24TH APRIL 2016 is Census Night. Completion of the green booklet that has been delivered to every dwelling in the country by appointed staff (“enumerators”) is mandatory and the completed booklet will be collected from you shortly after Census Night.

The Census is essentially a snapshot of Ireland taken on a specific date every few years. The Central Statistics Office states that completion of the Census provides them with information on what Ireland needs for the future.

So remember, please allow some time on Sunday evening to complete the form and have it safe and ready for collection in the coming weeks.

Remember too to ask for ID from the Census Enumerator to make sure that they are truly authorised to collect the form.
