On Sunday 7 February 2016 St Helena will be conducting a Population & Housing Census.  In addition to the traditional paper forms, an option to complete the Census online is available.

Additional megabytes will be provided to these households to ensure that online completion does not ‘cost’ anything to people taking up this option. Anyone who is interested in online completion, and has not yet done so, needs to register their interest no later than Friday 15 January 2016 by contacting the Statistics Office and providing the following information:

  • A contact e-mail address and telephone number
  • The district of the household where the questionnaire will be completed online

This information can be provided by email at: statistics@sainthelena.gov.sh or by telephoning 22138 (or via the Castle switchboard on 22470).

Registration for online completion is required as you will be issued with a unique code which you will need to access the Census online.  But registration for online completion does not stop you from completing a paper questionnaire if you decide later that this is a better option for you.

Remember – We Count Because YOU Count.

If you have any questions about any aspects of the Census please get in touch. The Statistics team can be contacted on the e-mail address and telephone number, or individuals can pop into the Castle for an informal chat.  Please note the Statistics Office has now moved one floor up in the Castle, directly above its old office.
