2021 Ethnic Group and Religion Questions Update Event
We are holding events in Edinburgh and Glasgow to present our proposals for the questions that Scotland’s Census 2021 will ask. This follows further investigation into changes to response options and collection of additional information in the ethnic group and religion questions.
For more information and to book on one of these events visit our events page.
Scotland’s Census 2021 will be at ‘The Gathering’ later this month. The Gathering is the largest event of its kind across the UK for the Third Sector. It’s taking place in Glasgow on 20 and 21 February and is free to attend. It’s organised by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.
The Scotland’s Census 2021 programme is undertaking user research work to support and inform the development of the online collection instrument which the general public will access to complete their census questionnaires online in 2021.
The research is being taken forward on behalf of Scotland’s Census 2021 by Taylor McKenzie Research & Marketing (TMK). TMK are currently recruiting people from a range of communities and population groups to assist us with this research. It is possible you may receive a call from them asking you if you’d like to take part.
