In 2022, Scotland will run its once-a-decade count of the population. The census is the official count of every person in the country. It collects information about where you stay and the people who stay there. The information you give helps make decisions about how public money will be spent on schools, roads, healthcare and other important services in your local community.
The census will open at the end of February 2022. Every household in Scotland will be sent a letter with instructions for taking part. Census day will be Sunday, 20 March but you will be able to complete your questionnaire as soon as you receive your letter. You will be able to do this online using instructions we will include in the letter.

In February 2020, the
Scottish Parliament passed a new law which extends the right to vote in
Scottish elections to people who are over 16 and live in Scotland. No matter where you were born, if you are a resident in
Scotland you can now vote in all Scottish elections.
To vote in the Scottish Parliament elections in May, you must register by Monday 19 April 2021 here: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
The Scottish Parliament has powers to make laws for Scotland in a range of areas including health, education, housing, justice and the environment. When you vote, you make your voice heard and have a say on who represents you on issues that directly affect your day-to-day.
Registering to vote improves your credit score. If you want to rent, get a mortgage, credit card or a mobile telephone contract, it really helps if you are on the electoral roll.
