I hope that all RootsChat members will remember to keep a copy of their return.  That way, any future relatives who are interested in family history won't have to wait until 2122 to see the entry.  :)

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

I guess it might be easier to find out about ancestors in 2122.  The young today seem to record everything on Facebook, WhatsApp etc.  It's been suggested that this might be the last census, no idea what will be put in its place though, the current ads telling you to complete the census suggest that the info is needed to know how many schools, hospitals, houses etc. to build.  Won't they need to know that in 2122 or even in 2031?

  I kept my form from last time. It was suggested by someone in the family history world and seemed a good idea.
  Al I have received so far is a card telling me to look out for the forms.

Nor me yet, not received anything.

I may get drunk and sleep in a field on census night so family in 100 years time will be asking on social media "Can anyone find this man on the 2021 census?"

Or give my middle name as my first name, and put my birthplace as my home city as opposed to the actual town.

I think the 2003 electoral roles would confuse anyone looking for me

How odd considering 'online' is used for almost everything these days, including voting i.e. Covid shouldn't really affect anything to do with the census  ???
Annie

I think the problem is chasing up households that haven't submitted census form need to be contacted in person.

The English/Welsh 2021 census is still going ahead so your theory seems just as odd as I was referring to the Scottish census which is seemingly delayed until 2022.
