The Falkland Islands will be holding its national census on Sunday. The previous census in 2012, revealed that the Falklands population was 2.840, of which 75% lived in Stanley and 57% identified themselves as Falkland Islanders. Censuses happen every 5 years and participation in the Census is required by law.

 According to the Falklands' government the Census can be completed online or by filling it out on a paper questionnaire. Everyone present in the Falkland Islands on the night of the Census must be included in the Census form.

Only those people who are Armed Forces Personnel currently serving in the Falkland Islands and their dependants are exempt from participating in the Census.

During September all known households in Stanley, Camp, and civilian occupied households at MPC received in the post a Census registration letter with instructions for registering the household to complete the Census, and to indicate whether you the person would like to complete it online or on a paper form.

Any queries about the Census should be referred to the Policy Unit on 28421 or 28422, or by emailing census2016@sec.gov.fk. You can also come along to the Census Help Desk at the West Store from Monday 10th to Wednesday 12th October, between 3pm and 7pm.
