How does everyone feel about completing the 2011 Census forms bearing in mind the various times Government departments have been reported by the media as losing consumers information?

Looking at the volume of questions id say there is a lot of un-necessary info and probably a lot of info that could be used to say apply for credit in someones name if it got into the wrong hands

Seems like a bit of a waste of money when you consider how much in debt the UK is.

Interested in views of other users

I was very happy filing it in; didn't even take 10 minutes online...

(_;) left mine on the train....so a government snooper/spy can fill it in

I didn'tthink it was meant to be filled in until tomorrow. What do they actually use the information for anyway? Surely they know who they've got in the country or they couldn't have sent them the forms! Obviously they don't know about people here illegally but they're clearly not going to fill in a form anyway.

I was expecting it to be more comprehensive, there wasn't much information requested at all!

I didn't take note of the number pages, but as far as i remember it was just how many in household, ages, and work details!

on the front page it says Please complete your census questionnaire and then in bold on 27th March 2011 or as soon as possible afterwards. It doesn't actually have a clear date on the front when it has to be back to them although I know there is a cut off date. The info you're meant to provide contains details about any visitors that may be staying overnight on 27th so they can't expect you to fill it in before then...you may get lucky on your sat night out and have an unexpected overnight visitor :3

Is it today? Typical! The same day I have my annual dinner party! I've got the Harlem Globe trotters, the pope, Del boy (the character), Prince Harry,a couple of lamas and Dirty Den attending this evening - and they're all staying over! Should make for an interesting census.

I'm doing my step-mum's census for her on-line.

She has only filled in half the form.

I am sure she thinks I have a crystal ball X)
