With just a few days to go until the May 1 deadline for completion, Mr Dey said: “The census is the official count of every person and household in the country, takes place every ten years and it is in the interests of everyone in Angus to complete it accurately and on time.
“The census benefits everyone because it helps the government and other service providers like local councils make important decisions about vital services such as education, healthcare and employment.
"Completing the census helps officials make better decisions about the things that matter to you.
“By setting aside just a few minutes to answer questions about yourself, your household, and the place where you live, you play a vital role in helping shape important community services in Angus, from the building of new schools and hospitals to improving transport links and understanding health needs.
“So, it is hugely important to play your part to make sure everyone is heard, and everyone’s individual needs are accurately recorded.”
