A census is used to find out information about people.
It was started in 1801 to record the population of England, Scotland and Wales - which was found to be nine million - partially so the government could ensure there was enough to eat.
It is now carried out every 10 years to give a snapshot of life in the UK. It includes who lives at an address, their jobs and if they have any pets.
By the time of the last census, taken in 2011 - the first that could be completed online - the UK population had risen to 63.2 million.
The 2011 census has been digitally archived and kept in a secure location, but in the past, census keeping was at times patchy.
Results of early censuses were written in books, some of which were lost over time. The entire 1931 census was lost in a fire while the 1841 results from Wrexham went missing - until later turning up in a bookshop.
