THE CENTRAL STATISTICS Office (CSO) has said it is planning to prosecute a small number of people who refused to co-operate with census enumerators this year.

The 2016 Census was carried out on 24 April and a small number of people returned blank forms or refused to accept them when enumerators came to their door.

There were five successful prosecutions after the 2011 survey.

We want to know what you think: Should people who refuse to co-operate with the Census be prosecuted?


Poll Results:

Yes (10522)
