“Too soon” to scrap census

MPs have advised the government that it is “too soon” to decide whether to scrap the national census and the 2021 survey should go ahead as planned. The Public Administration Select Committee said in a report that the days of the "traditional, paper-based" census were "numbered". But alternative options were not yet "sufficiently advanced to provide a proper replacement", it concluded. The government has indicated that the 2011 census could have been the last.
