THE IRISH CENSUS 2011 will take place on 10 April, and by now the majority of people in the Republic should have their census form ready to be filled out on the night.

But what if you haven’t gotten your form yet?

A spokesperson from the Census press office told that there are two things you can do.

You can ring the helpline, which is 1890 201111, or visit our website where there is an interactive helpdesk.  Leave your details and we will get an enumerator in your area to contact you.

The spokesperson said that due to long working hours or holidays, some people may not have been home when the enumerator called to their house and so may not have received a form yet.

He urged people to contact the Census office as once they have an individual’s details they can then send an enumerator around at a time that suits the person in question.

He added that a large amount of people who are not from Ireland originally have been contacting the Census office with queries. The forms are available in 21 different languages to cater for people of all nationalities living here and people are welcome to ring 1809 201111 with any questions they may have.
