Household form


The household form is the primary means for collecting Census data and is used in all private dwellings. A copy of the form used for the 2006 Census is included in Appendix A of this publication. A personal form records person characteristics in cases where a household form is not appropriate. If there are more than six people in a household on Census Night, a personal form is completed for the seventh person, and any subsequent persons.
