It is the day, the once a decade day, the day of the 2011 census.
This is a huge deal to me for the following reasons:
1. It is part of history, the results of what we provide today will remain of interest through hundreds of years to come, amazing!
2. I love statistics; not rubbish reporting of them, but pure unadulterated statistics about people.
3. I am fascinated in my local community and can't wait to find out how we are made up in terms of households, employment and faith.
4. It's the first time Rachel will show on the census record.
And so today I have been debating whether to complete the census on the paper version or to complete it online. Do I want to follow the path of history and provide my own handwriting? Or show, as part of the census completion, that I am very much a part of the Internet age?
I have gone for the latter, it seems fitting that since I do everything possible online, I will complete the census online.
Happy census completion, today we mark a specific point in historic.
