Welcome to the My Future York and the 2027 Census

The My Future York research project is working with people who live and work in York - or might want to in the future - to explore and understand the issues facing the city.

One approach that we're taking as part of the My Future York project is to look back to York's history to look forward. As part of this we looked at the 1911 Census for Hungate and have used this as inspiration to create a future Census as a way of imagining our lives in ten years' time.

You can read more about what we found in the 1911 Census and how we developed the 2027 Census on the My Future York website.

We invite you to do our My Future York 2027 Census. It will take about five minutes. You'll then have a number of choices about your contribution will be used and shared.
