As part of our planning for the 2022 census, we ran a rehearsal from 7 October to 7 November 2019. We asked respondents to provide information as of 13 October.
We ran the rehearsal in 3 local authority areas, reaching 72,000 households. They were:
- parts of Glasgow City
- Dumfries and Galloway
- Na h-Eileanan Siar
After the rehearsal, we published an evaluation report.
This report provides a summary of the rehearsal's key findings. It also outlines next steps for us to take to ensure the successful delivery of 2022's census.
In 2020, we also ran a statistical methodology rehearsal.
