    A snapshot of life in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is to be captured later when millions of people take part in the once-a-decade census.

    People are being asked to complete an online questionnaire about every person living at their property.

    For the first time it also includes voluntary questions for over-16s on gender identity and sexual orientation.

    The ONS says the 2021 census will provide insights into the impact of the pandemic and Brexit on people’s lives.

    By law, you must complete or be accounted for in the census. Those who fail to fill it in or give false information can be fined up to £1,000.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
