In the first few weeks of processing staff at the DPC were confronted with the arrival of an unprecedented number of Census forms by mail. The sheer volume of forms arriving every day greatly exceeded all expectations and posed a variety of logistical problems for management. The main concern expressed was about the impact on overall data quality as mailed forms were felt to generally include poorer quality data. This experience also showed the need to analyse the issue of posted-in forms in detail to enable the development of strategies for future Censuses.
