Filled mine in on line. Thought it an absolute doddle doing it that way.

Wonder how many did - seems such a waste sending out all those envelopes stuffed with paper.

It seemed such a waste of paper not to fill it in and post it back after they very thoughtfully wasted a small fortune sending it out. :D

Another one in a similar vein. Postal votes. Hand delivered is a card stating "Official postal poll card". This states that postal voting papers will be delivered (by post) on such and such a date. :confused:

Never yet filled in a Census in the UK....no comebacks or follow ups either.

First time I have ever filled one out, just goes to show how much of a waste of precious resources it is. Surely the millions it costs to take a census would be better used providing the services the census is supposed aid.

Well, have just processed the Council Tax requests for where I work and a little leaflet with the demands state:

'Completing your census form will mean roughly £6,000* of government sunding for local services'
* per completed form

What utter crap!!
112,000 Property Census forms for Conwy County area would equal approx £672,000,000 for just this seaside resort area.

In a somewhat tenuous link, we've already had bogus "Census Officers" carrying out distraction burglaries in this area :evil: They just don't miss a trick.
