2011 English and Welsh test census

In March 2009 there was a test census in Lewis, Harris and Edinburgh, in preparation for the 2011 census, to be formally recorded in March 27th 2011. There were 50,000 households to be enumerated, but I haven't heard since how that actually panned out (I assume it happened!).

However, in England and Wales, there will also be a test census on October 11th 2009 in Lancaster, the London borough of Newham, and the Isles of Anglesey in Wales (Ynys Môns). The questions for this census, which are unlikely to change, can be read online at www.ons.gov.uk/census/2011-census/2011-census-questionnaire-content/2009-rehearsal-questionnaire/index.html - a nice sneak preview of things to come!
