Census Working Papers
Census Working Papers provide background information on data collection and procedural issues. Their purpose is to contribute to a greater understanding of the data, the processes and procedures that impact upon the final output.
These Working Papers discuss data quality issues that have the potential to affect the interpretation of census results. Issues addressed include: response rates and response patterns to new questions; changes to question design; the impact of processing edits on data output; and the methodological effectiveness of Special Enumeration Strategies.
Census Working Papers provide in-depth information and are best suited to the needs of researchers, academics, consultants, government and international statistical agencies.
As the 2001 Census Working Papers become available they will be included on the Census pages of the ABS web site www.abs.gov.au/census and will be able to be downloaded free of charge.
