my OH did ours online about 2-3 weeks ago.
I don't know what the fuss is about. The Gvt need to collate data in order to tailor laws that suit the citizens. What annoys me is when the categories are not quite right.

I understand why it's needed but some of it is just useless info, why do they need the address of where you work, your working hours, how many nights a year you're away from home, who's at your house for more than 30 days a year?
It's supposed to be for data reasons but it sounds more like they're trying to catch people out ...but then again if you're doing nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about :)

I'm studying for my 'Life in the UK' test and I need to know such useless pieces of data...
I think that, by law, the results of the census are not available for other agencies to use for years, so I really don't think they're trying to catch people out.

you could fill it in and send it back as soon as you received it providing you knew who exactly was staying at your tonight :)
That could be a little hard I mean what happens if you're poorly and have to go into hospital or look after a sick relative.
How does a hospital or nursing home do a census :{ there's an awful lot of people there?

i know why they ask that. If you stay at someones house for more than 30 days your liable to pay council tax. sneaky eh.

Very few people get fined for failing to complete their form, last time 1 million people failed to fill their in but only 38 were fined/

Mine is in, I did it on line.

I work in a nursing home and we have had to fill one out for every resident, 34 in total but we were told only to put name, age and sex on every form.

Ours is filled out, just need to post it off now :) It didn't take too long to do, but there are only 2 of us in the house.

My mum & dad traced back their family histories and the census results came in really useful for gaining a bit more insight into their family rather than just names and DOB / DOD :)
