Following three years of research and user consultation into options for the 2021 census and future provision of population statistics in England and Wales, the National Statistician has recommended to the Board of the UK Statistics Authority that a predominantly online census should be undertaken in 2021, supplemented by the use of administrative and survey data.

National Records of Scotland (NRS) have also announced they will be following a similar route, with a primarily online 2021 Census and supplementary use of administrative datasets. More this announcement can be found here.
On Monday 3 March 2014 the ONS Census Prospectus announced new table layouts (relating to travel to work data) for releases 3.6 and 4.6 which include:
