Census Regulations

On 7 May 2020 the Census (Scotland) Regulations 2020 were laid at the Scottish Parliament. The Regulations set out the arrangements for how Scotland’s Census 2021 will be conducted, including the detail of the questions to be asked.

The following Impact Assessments which accompanied the Census Order have now been updated to align with laying of the Census Regulations. The assessment of impacts will continue up to Census day and beyond.
